I love earth wind and fire. Amazing that after so many years they still are top performers and their concerts are still so energized and exciting.

I saw Earth, Wind and Fire with Chicago last summer in Tampa. One of the hottest tours ever! Both bands played together on EWF's "After the Love is Gone" which was written (and sung that night) by Bill Champlin of Chicago and Phillip Bailey.
