Born in 1955 in Chicago, Fred White belonged to a family of musicians.

Writing further in the Instagram post, Verdine wrote that at home and beyond, he was the wonderful brother who was always entertaining and delightfully mischievous. He added that they could always count on him to make a seemingly bad situation more light-hearted.

Later in 1970, Maurice found Earth, Wind, & Fire after moving to Los Angeles and Verdine also ended up joining the band sometimes later. After passing a few years, they managed to convince their younger brother to join the band as a primary drummer. Through the mid-1980s, Fred played the drums for the funk-soul-disco-R&B-fusion band. Needless to say, Fred’s tight and energetic beats made up the backbone of hits like “Shining Star” and “Let’s Groove”.
