The first comment generally heard when a normal person mentions Earth, Wind, & Fire bassist, Verdine White, is how dynamic his stage presence is, with his movement while playing and outfits you can see from the back row. Then, if they catch on, they throw in, "...and what a MONSTER musician, too!" Indeed, Verdine has had a legendary career over the past 40 years with Earth, Wind, & Fire. In this time, six Grammy wins (and eleven more nominations) have come his way, not to mention the 50 gold and platinum albums earned through sales. In 2008, Verdine was cemented into the pantheon by receiving Bass Player magazine's Lifetime Achievement Award, presented to him by Nathan East. Verdine is also a huge community supporter, as a 2007 inductee into the Boys & Girls Club Alumni Hall of Fame. He has even formed his own foundation to provide musical education to gifted, underprivileged students.
