Earth, Wind & Fire formed in 1969 in Chicago, Illinois when a new brand of pop music was being developed. This type of music had strong African and African-American influences, particularly jazz and R&B. This new hybrid appealed to the masses, and brought Americans together in celebrating multiculturalism. Maurice White, founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, started with the Ramsey Lewis Trio 1967. Signed to Chess Records, the Ramsey Lewis Trio was Maurice's first experience with performing on stage, and it also helped shape his musical vision. In 1969, Maurice left the Ramsey Music Trio and joined his two friends, Wade Flemons and Don Whitehead. This group became known as the Sallty Peppers. The group found success in songwriting as well as composing songs and commercials in the Chicago area, though there recorded song "La La Time" with Capitol was only a marginal hit.
The Salty Peppers then relocated to Los Angeles and signed a record deal with Warner Brothers. Maurice also changed the band's name to Earth, Wind & Fire, which represents the three elements in his astrological chart. This new name also more accurately represented Maurice's spiritual approach to music. In addition to White, Flemons, and Whitehead, Maurice recruited Michael Beal on guitar, Leslie Drayton, Chester Washington and Alex Thomas on horns, Sherry Scott on vocals, percussionist Phillard Williams and his younger brother Verdine on bass.
The bands self-titled debut album, Earth, Wind & Fire, was released in 1971 and received critical acclaim. There next album, The Need of Love, was released in 1971 and found equal popularity. However, the band was still broke and becoming restless, and the members split up, leaving only brother Verdine and Maurice. In 1972, the band reformed with a new lineup, including vocalists Jessica Cleaves and Philip Bailey, Ronnie Laws on the flute and saxophone, Roland Bautista on rhythm guitar, Larry Dunn on keyboard, and Ralph Johnson on percussion. Earth, Wind &Fire switch to Columbia Records and released the album Last Days and Time, which featured mostly original music but also classic covers of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Make it with You".
Earth, Wind & Fire hit their stride between 1973 and 1980. Ronnie Laws and Roland Bautista left, and were replaces by Andrew Woolfolk, Joe Henderson, and Al McKay. The band released the album Head to the Sky which gave the group their first legitimate hit singles "Evil" and "Keep Your head to the Sky". Earth, Wind & Fire continued producing more hits, such as "Mighty Mighty", "Devotion", and "That's the Way of the World". "Shining Star", perhaps the band's most loved song, was inspired by Maurice's walk under the star-filled skies that surrounded the mountains around Caribou Ranch, CO a popular recording site and retreat during the '70s. "Shining Star" was number one R&B for two weeks and hit number one pop in early 1975, and it earned them their first Grammy Award.
