Earth Wind & Fire has been such an inspiration for me on many levels. Their visual representation from their magic theater-style performances to their record cover illustrations by Shusei Nagaoka (peep my post on his work above) and videos reflected a bigger spiritual vision that they were manifesting through their music. What Maurice White says about creativity and spirituality is the way I see the two intertwined in my life as well, and I'm definitely feeling Larry Dunn (part 3) in preferring doing creative work to yachting. Their music and message are timeless.
