"'My Promise,' it's a great song," the band's co-founder Verdine White tells Rolling Stone. "Straight down the middle, Earth, Wind and Fire. No question about it." To which original member Philip Bailey adds, "We put in a sincere attempt to be and do Earth, Wind and Fire the way people have come to know and love it, to rediscover the essence of what that is."
