Fred White, the drummer for Earth, Wind & Fire, is lifeless.
Fred died Sunday, in line with his brother and bandmate, Verdine. The reason behind dying is unclear.
The fourth of the White brothers to carry out in Earth, Wind & Fire, Fred was one of many well-known band’s early members … becoming a member of EWF approach again in 1974 when he was simply 19 years outdated.
Fred performed drums on 8 completely different Earth, Wind & Fire albums … plus a few of their largest hit songs like “September,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “Saturday Night” and “Shining Star” … and he is one of many 9 band members inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Verdine is remembering his late brother as an “superb and gifted member of the family” and a “little one protégé.” He added … Fred’s now with their different brother, and EWF founder, Maurice White in heaven.
Off stage, Verdine says Fred was “the great bro that was all the time entertaining and delightfully mischievous! And we may all the time rely on him to make a seemingly dangerous state of affairs extra mild hearted!”
