Andrew Woolfolk, former Earth, Wind & Fire saxophonist, has died. He was 71.



The musician, who performed with the band for two years-long stints from 1973 to 1984 and again from 1987 to 1993, died Sunday after a six-year battle with an unknown illness, according to Earth, Wind & Fire vocalist Philip Bailey.



“I met him in High School, and we quickly became friends and band mates. Andrew Paul Woolfolk was his name,” Bailey, 70, wrote in an Instagram caption alongside a photo with his former bandmate. “We lost him today, after being ill of over 6 years.”



“He has transitioned on to the forever, from this Land of the dying to the Land of the Living,” continued the singer. “Great memories. Great Talent. Funny. Competitive. Quick witted. And always styling.”



Bailey concluded his post, writing, “Booski… I”ll see you on the other side, my friend.”
