I remember seeing them in concert for the first time. They put on an amazing show. Not just the music, which was awesome, but the pure showmanship. RIP

Damn. This one hurts. I learned how to play drums, playing along with their records.

Jeremy (not dead but gravely injured), Ken Block, Damar Hamlin, Gangsta Boo, Uche Nwaneri (38 year old NFL player found dead on the 30th but announced yesterday), and a couple more. All within 3 days

I understand why they were randomly playing let's groove on shortwave this morning now. That really sucks....

That's how I found out Prince died. Was grooving to the radio and was like "wow, four prince songs a row, nice!". Now anytime I hear a band played multiple times in a row I assume they died.

Modest Mouse’s drummer, Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia and this?

2023 looking bad already.

I saw EW&F back when they were promoting I AM. The most entertaining concert i ever attended. 20 people on stage, costumes, magic show all during the concert. And the music, ever song on that album is great. What a spectacle.

My stepsister used to play their tapes in my stepdad’s car, thinking she was annoying him. If she really was he would have popped it out. Only great music I ever remember being played in a parent’s car. RIP ☮️

The way things are going for them, they will be down to just Fire pretty soon.

Damn. RIP you magnificent musician.

I'll start. Was that Earth, Wind, or Fire?


LowDownSkankyDude t1_j2sbmll wrote

I'd argue earth.


emperor_dragoon t1_j2sbvtm wrote

I was thinking he was Wind. But also he was the drummer, so it could have been Fire.


LowDownSkankyDude t1_j2sccwd wrote

I was thinking, since rhythm was the foundation of their music, he and the bass player were earth, their horn section was wind, and Maurice spit hot fire as lead vocalist. I probably put too much thought into it tho. LoL
