By  | 

Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White died Thursday at the age of 74 after suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The nine-piece band sold more than 90 million albums with well-known hits like “September” and ”Shining Star,” and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000.

“My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep,” Verdine White, Maurice’s brother and former bandmate, told The Associated Press. “While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life-changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.”


ARTMUZO is an online media magazine that connects you the artist to an eclectic fusion of style and art collocated in one site. The concept of ARTMUZO Philadelphia began in 2009 first as a local Philadelphia artist blog about art and music. It would later evolve into a more complex idea of a fused media online magazine that promotes an array of artist of different genre's and mediums.
