Philip Bailey

Philip Bailey is a Denver native – born in 1951. He is alleged to have attended East High School in Denver but his autobiography only makes reference to attending Manual High in Denver. Bailey joined up with Maurice White’s second formation of Earth, Wind & Fire which at the time was based in California. As a solo act, Bailey charted five times on the national charts and teamed up with Phil Collins for his biggest hit.

Bailey played at many venues in and around Denver beginning at a very early age – before graduating from High School. He was also a member of numerous Denver area groups including his own Mystic Moods before forming Friends & Love with his very good friend – drummer Larry Dunn – another Denver native who would later travel with Bailey to California to became a solid and long-time member of Earth, Wind and Fire. The group was briefly known as Electric Black. Bailey and Dunn were joined by two additional vocalists – Carl Carwell and Winston Ford in the group – both contributing as lead singers.

Friends & Love were a regular act at the Denver venues 23rd Street East and Shapes. They opened in Denver for Earth, Wind & Fire in that group’s early days.
