Earth, Wind & Contract

Whenever death, disco and breach of contract are in the same story, it must be shared with others.  In this case, the children of Charles Stepney, the now-deceased producer of many early Earth, Wind & Fire's hits, are suing the group's founder, Maurice White (and Sony Music Holdings), for breach of contract.  Stepney's children claim that no one ever paid Stepney any of the royalties owed to him.  I would love to see the terms of the actual contract but neither it nor the complaint are available yet.  Stay tuned for an update.  In the meantime, Let's Groove!
