The co-founder of Earth, Wind, & Fire died in his sleep in LA after a long battle with Parkinson’s.

He was diagnosed in 1992 and his condition continuously worsened over the last few months. Maurice hadn’t toured with the group since 1994 due to his illness.

Maurice still remained actively involved in the group’s decisions although he wasn’t on tour. Maurice’s brother Verdine is also a member of the group.

We send our prayers and condolences to his family and friends. RIP
