*Earth, Wind & Fire creator Maurice White is being sued over allegations he failed to pay thousands of dollars to the producer of some of the group’s biggest hits — a producer who died 36 years ago, reports TMZ.
The children of Charles Stepney, producer of EWF hits from 1974 through his death in 1976 – including “Shining Star,” “Devotion” and “Sing a Song” – claim they recently discovered that their father never received any royalty checks for his work.
Now, they want Maurice, along with Sony Music Holdings, Inc., to pay all of the royalties owed to Stepney dating back to 1974.
So far, no comment from Maurice White’s camp.
