After moving to Chicago by the mid-1960's he was working as a studio drummer for Chess Records recording with artists such as Etta James, Sonny Stitt, Muddy Waters or Buddy Guy.
In 1970 he then moved from Chicago to L.A. and founded the nine-piece band Earth, Wind & Fire. He wrote and arranged most of the songs, sang and played the percussions. 1995 he announced to quit touring with the band, because he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
