Of all the rock and roll legends to pass in the past 30 plus days, this one is the hardest for me. I was always drawn to R&B music even in my earliest years. While others listened to rock, I hung out listening to EWF, Commodores, Stevie Wonder, Motown and other soul driven bands. They still remain favs today.
Maurice White was not only a gifted songwriter and singer, but a great entertainer. I’ve seen EWF twice, however, Mo was not a part of the band by then.
I knew of his parkinson’s disease for some time and it was tough watching him slowly fade away.
