“An energetic memoir about a complex individual and his music.”
~Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of Bailey’s music will find him a warm and occasionally very funny guide through the elements of this American band that Rolling Stone declared “changed the sound of black pop.”

~Publishers Weekly

“[Shining Star] is a memoir of a man, a band, and a vision…. What may impress the most is Bailey’s honesty in relating conflicts that eventually tore the band apart, as well as his own shortcomings.”

“If you’ve ever been a fan of Earth, Wind and Fire (and who hasn’t?), buy this book!”


“Ninety million records sold. Eight Grammy awards. Lot of platinum and gold records. And lead singer Bailey’s leaping multi-octave range. The numbers speak for themselves, but Bailey has more to say in this memoir, which ranges from Earth, Wind, & Fire’s early years to founder Maurice White’s disbanding the group in 1983 to Bailey’s solo career (which gave us “Easy Lover”) to the group’s reuniting and eventual ascension to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

~Library Journal

A fun read overall, especially for the many EWF fans still out there.
