Verdine White, Legendary Bassist of Earth, Wind & Fire, Visits CORE: -

Join the multi-Grammy award winner for a rare interview

Earth, Wind & Fire are a music institution. Over the band's five-decade history they've sold out concerts all around the globe, scored eight number one hits and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Eight of the band's 23 albums went Double Platinum and hit the Top 10, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. They've also won an impressive nine Grammy Awards including one for Lifetime Achievement (2012). Not exactly shabby. In 2000, Earth, Wind & Fire was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, cementing their lasting impact on popular music.
In 1969, music legend Maurice White birthed the music force named after the elements from his very own astrological charts. With soul as deep as the planet, Earth, Wind & Fire charted a history that will live on forever.

They continue to influence musicians from all generations and genres. Music giants Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Prince have studied and hailed their artistry. While many of today's chart-topping artists including Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper and Solange have declared themselves super fans. Alicia Keys has called Earth, Wind & Fire the best band ever, and Mary J. Blige showed her love by recording their song "Imagination". And the band shared the stage with Black Eyed Peas performing on the the half-time show at Super Bowl XX1X.

Join Verdine White, who has been part of the legendary band from the start and considered one of the best bassists of all-time, for a special conversation as he recounts his memories with the band and discusses where music is today.
