Herb Powell Talks Writing With Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire



no Twitter with current id

Musician and writer Herb Powell tells The Progress-Index about his relationship with Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White and how he came to be White’s co-author for “My Life With Earth, Wind & Fire,” which arrives Tuesday.  White had gone through 2 contributors before finally landing on Powell.

My affection for Maurice White is well known.  I can’t wait to read the book, and discover the backstory on how the “Greatest Band Ever Created” came into existence.

    I just finished reading “Maurice White, My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire. My niece gave me the book for Christmas because she knew that EW&F was my all time favorite band and I had dreams of one day meeting Maurice White and singing a few bars with them. That dream is still on my bucket list! I never missed an EW&F performance whenever they came to the NY area and I bought every album. Needless to say, I was then and still am their biggest fan. Since I read your book, now more than ever do I understand what an extraordinary man Maurice White was. You helped me to know the man behind the lyrics and have given me a greater and deeper appreciation of who Mr. White was. Thank you so much.
