MY LIFE WITH EARTH,WIND & FIRE / Maurice White My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire
My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire Reading in English · · ·
 It took me a month to finish reading,
as I have not made it a habit.

 At first it took a while to read,but after 100 page,
I follow the page I am excited about the episode with EWF members and well-known superstars I wanted to secure time to read quickly · · ·

I felt that way. The first black band that changed the history of music.
 Its history and energy gave you power I believe.

 When thinking that such a leader, Maurice does not exist in this world anymore・・・
I am very lonely though ...
 The music he left behind and the various influences are engraved numerous and deeply in history.

 Please read this book and get to know the origin of EWF.
And the message Maurice wanted to tell. Except some disco music, EWF's music is great message from outer space. That way I recognize it.

 A strong step-up message like the world coach, Anthony Robbins !
 They send us with music. One book I would like to read by those who are not EWF fans.

1.Memphis Wonderland
2.Between The Vision And The Fulfillment
3.To Sing Our Message Loud And Clear
4.Full-Spectrum Music
5.The Changing Times

I was so excited seeing them again/
The Members of Earth,Wind & Fire!

Before the concert,
I visited the  hotel  they stayed at with the Japanese friend who had worked with them.

Waiting in the lobby about 20 minutes, the members came down.
My friends who first met with them for the first time were in a dreamlike state that seem to be stunned.

A friend's little daughter started crying poorly at that timing, 
but  David B Whitworth tryed to stop her crying with gentle smile and voice. 

How kind  members of EWF are!

Although it is just a little time, I really enjoyed talking and talking with them!

I really thanks to them!

5 hours later at Osaka festival Hall.
Brrilliant performance started on the stage.

At that time, Kim Johnson  participated , I felt it gorgeous to listen to their chorus with female member.

Philip Bailey lead the performance on  the center,.
and B David Whitworth also played a major role!

The camera was chasing only 3 of the original members,
Philip Bailey, Verdine White, Ralph Johnson.
There was dissatisfied point for me coz I really love all the members of EWF.

Cavalcade of hit songs!

Hundreds of times would have been listened , but these songs  never get us tired.
Also attractive arrangement was changing.

Interlude that connects the songs, solo play at the time of the member referral・・・
There were really cool!

For me,this DVD became in one important thing to watch on a regular basis in the future.
