Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey – HuffPost 10.24.14

Mike Ragogna: What advice do you have for new aritsts?

Philip Bailey: I don’t think very hard when people ask me that. I just come up with the first thing I think, which is don’t buy into the hype. Just keep it real…just keep it real. Buying into the hype can get you into a lot of trouble, believing your own press. One way or the other, keep it real. Know what’s good, what’s bad and what’s different.

MR: Is this something you would’ve told yourself way back when you started?

PB: Well, it’s something I did tell myself. I don’t necessarily have to tell myself that now because I’m solid with it. I keep it in perspective. You can’t get really caught up in the hype and lose your way.
