Verdine White, Philip Bailey, and Ralph Johnson sat down with Arsenio Hall to talk about the major impact their band has had on music over the past 45 years. During the interview, the trio pays tribute to the group's founder and lead songwriter in the early days, Maurice White. Arsenio even refers to him as "the black John Lennon." They also discuss Verdine's trailblazing fashion sense throughout the years and Ralph declares himself the wind of the group, Verdine is obviously the fire which leaves lead vocalist Philip Bailey to be the calm and stable earth. The interview ends with Arsenio Hall being deemed an honorary member of Earth, Wind & Fire! Check it out below.
