33 years ago, a little known radio DJ had the incredible opportunity to sit down with one of music’s biggest names for Ebony/Jet’s Celebrity Showcase. Admittedly nervous, Tom Joyner sat down with Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White and Phillip Bailey to talk about the group’s unique sense of style.

White, the founder and leader of Earth, Wind & Fire, died in his Los Angeles home Wednesday night. The group has currently sold more than 90 million albums.

Watch the incredible interview here where both Bailey and White reveal that for years only their two voices were heard on Earth Wind & Fire’s records.
