Quotes

  • [observation, 2013, on ‘Earth, Wind and Fire’s longevity]The music itself has been the soundtrack of many people’s lives. It actually comes back and speaks to us, even as creators of the music. Our message and our music has always been the same one: of love and respect for humanity and mankind, and lifting the consciousness of folk in that way. I think it’s feel-good music.
