I met him once. Did some contract work for his studio in Dayton. Good man.

And I agree, Luther and Earth, Wind and Fire were the best... THE best!
I know he died but had to look up when. He died in 1999!

I thought it wasn't that long ago either.

Man I'm old.

Talking about all the great groups from the 60's, 70's and early 80's is telling me I'm old, lol.

Roger's brother shot him and then killed himself. Pretty sad.

Yeah, you know the only thing I ever had against rap was that it stole the spotlight from funk. People forgot about funk. Heck, you can't even go see a bad porno and hear the funky bass in the background anymore. We really lost something special when we let funk die IMO.

Well, you can still hear Funk when you listen to Rap since they steal from Funk, lol.

I don't blame Rap but do blame Hip Hop since Hip Hop proceeded Rap.

EDIT: That song, Rappers Paradise pretty much killed Funk because it changed Pop music forever. Funk never entered the Pop genre and thank God for that because we would have some messed up sucky music if Funk ever did.

You know what's funny?

I bet the Bengals Board Black Community or the BBBC are just marveling at us Bengals Board White Community or the BBWC talking about Funk, Soul and R&B, lol. everyone knows white men can't jump and they have no rhythm at all except for that in their own mind.

Put a glide in your stride
A dip in your hip
And come on to the Mothership.

Oh FUNK. I thought we were using a whole different word. No wonder my posts seemed out of place.

Yeah, hey, hey Oh, yeah

I'd been having my
Eyes on you for awhile

And I sure do like your style

Maybe it's the way
That you carry yourself
Maybe it's the way
That you ride around

EW&F has a reputation as a pop radio band, but they bring the heavy funk to their live shows. When I saw then they had four seperate drum set ups with one at each corner of the stage, and Verdeen White was thumping the **** out of the bass.
