Although Don was closer to my sister Calvine than to me I remember him as a smooth, cool, spiritual brother who was never, ever without his horn!

Jeff K |

He took a good song, Reasons, and made it one of the best live songs of all time.

Ah, my bad. Happy belated birthday to you Don while you're resting in peace. I'm proud to have shared the Aries zodiac with you.

@Elliot Myrick: Thanx for the info. I'm sorry for the loss of your cousin. Don was a valuable iconic member of EWF. He played so beautiful. Don't you agree? knoflaw1 at yawho dot com

Don is my cousin. He was born on April 6, 1940. He would have turned 72 this past Friday if it weren't for that trigger happy cop, Gary Barbaro.

you would be amazed of how many brothers in the arts(music,movies etc..) killed by the LAPD and some how no one is ever charged and convicted of these murders.....rather it's tape for the public to see or not...some one in L.A.need to look into this and see how many times the same officer/s are involved in how many similar crimes....of murder..Don Myrick are you kidding me the horn of love..ask the killing officer to listen to REASONS solo...what a lost...did he (Don) die from the choke hold like so many youngmen in the brutal hands of the LAPD ? anytime the world could see the a** kiicking (yes double i) Rodney King took from these thugs in uniform Don Myrick didn't stand a chance..the negros in LAPD uniforms said nothing.....GOD HELP L.A.P.D AND THE PEOPLE OF L.A....

I was in junior high school when I first heard Maurice White say "ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Don Myrick on the Alto Horn. He plays so beautiful, don't you agree". I agree!

Don Myrick's alto solo on Reasons is simply put, a soul stirring masterpiece. I was saddened to learn of his fate. What a horn section they must have in heaven. One of the prettiest solos I've ever heard. Rest in peace, brother....

How can you "accidentally" be killed by police? Oh, I forgot, the operative word here is POLICE!! I, for one, definitely know what "Police" is capable of doing, so it isn't hard to picture how one of the world's greatest SAX players was "accidentally" killed!! When Don played REASONS, it was heaven on Earth!! Like the say in the live version, "He plays so beautifully, don't you agree" then the crowd roars with approval! At least now GOD gets to hear his heavenly horn play. God Bless You!

My sentiments echo previous entries. I listen to the EW & F Live album all of the time. His genius is all over that album. I love "Reasons" but there is something about his solo on "Sun Goddess" that is funky yet emotionally soul-stirring. What a talent. God Bless him . . .

How can I order the music for " Reasons?"
Is there an alto saxapone music version?"
I've been trying to obtain a music copy / alto saxaphone version of "Reasons."
I'm 50yrs. old and still playing EWF.
Don Myrick must have had a serious healing of the heart & soul while playing this tune.
I've had that feeling of "Heaven" with that tune. It can be a tune for anybody. Myrick's
play of "Reasons" penetrates the "Unknown" Spritual side of the Heart and Soul.

What a calm, emotional, sensitive, spiritual
feeling when listening.

Sincerely,

Gilbert Rossie

What a tragedy.
The weird thing is....
he was murdered by LAPD 'accidentally'; my 2nd wife I married on xmas eve 2 years ago, we went to high school together.....she is a retired.......you got it, LAPD police officer. At times it is tough to talk to her about crime, especially with LAPD and their ongoing problems.

I never payed attention to Don when he was wih Earth, Wind and Fire. I first noticed his talents when he toured with Phil Collins. His sax touched me when he played in "One More Night". An absolute talented person.

Burrell & Becky |

Don Myrick you and your God gift for music is missed, we've played your solo from Reasons so much we had to buy two more copies.
Are there any other music that Don played, that we can purchase.
God bless you all,
Burrell and Becky

Fan of Don Myrick |

You will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace.

One of his best renditions was his piece on the live version of "Reasons." Such a heavenly and surreal piece to be exact.
