Remembering Bill Withers

It’s with much sadness today that we report the passing of legendary soul composer, singer and musician Bill Withers.  He passed on March 30th from heart complications.  His hits included what have become modern popular music standards including “Use Me,” “Ain’t No Sunshine” and perhaps his most well-known song, “Lean On Me,” with over 100 cover versions to date.  Withers released his final album in the mid 80s, Watching You Watching Me, and abruptly quit the music business soon after, not having recorded or toured since that time.  Bill’s life story was released as a video memoir in his Still Bill video.
