    Earth Wind and Fire

    The wife and I are going to the EW&F concert! To-night!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    You will not regret it. Outstanding instrumentalists. great percussion section, great horns. Part of a sea change in music.

    My son is 15, studies bass guitar, upright bass. He's in the EW&F, Parliament, Funkadelic, Rick James and George Clinton stage right now. Finally, my LP's have some meaning to him.

    Sweet! My kids are 22 and 26, the wife and I played EW&F stuff all the time, they love it...along with David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Genisis, Prince, Queen and so on.

    Other than Prince, right there with you. I play all of them on my Zune in the car. He's a huge Queen fan, and of course, one of his favorites, Muse, I think, does a lot of Queen-influenced stuff. Johnny Cash is a deity to his group, phrasing and timbre that can never be done again. I played my son the song "In Your Mind" from Dead Man Walking, and he was blown away. This is so odd...last night I played him Roy Orbison and Chris Isaak, and he quickly figured it out.... I played the bass, too, at his age, though not as well. I did get to play with Maynard Ferguson when he came to our school to teach a class...class act. Lately, I've been showing him how "tight" the 3-man groups were, like Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and he already has Rush on his mp3, tons of it. It's nice to be able to discuss anything with a 15-year old, other than his behavior.

    I turned him on to The Who long ago. Old Yes stuff blows him away, especially the bass stuff. Now, he wants a new turntable. SCORE!

    We play an EW&F medley and it always kills.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
    ― Muhammad Ali

    Oakland Coliseum, 1978, me and my roommates. What a blast. The lights went down, the crowd went crazy and the PA announced the warm-up band...Huey Lewis and the News!!!! We looked at each other and went "Who?". Well...Huey killed it...absolutely phenomenol set...and then E,W & F came on and killed even more. Great magic too....Maurice ended up disappearing and then re-appearing in a box suspended 50 feet above above the stage...it was awesome!

    That was Verdine's trick when they played in Rochester. He was playing the bass all through the whole thing.
