Him, along with Cat Stevens, are my favourite solo musicians.

He lived a good, long life and left a huge legacy behind. His impact upon the music world was big, and he's been covered and cited as a musical influence many times. 

 

It's sad, but easier for me to accept than some of those we've lost much younger. My condolences to his friends and family.

Who the hell am I gonna lean on now?  In a time when we're not feeling so strong, that song is timeless.

 

I loved him.  RIP Bill...thank you for the wonderful, soulful music.

Sad news, PB. He had a few of those tunes you just had to hear(for the soul) every now & then. You only needed to hear him sing a few words & knew, this must be a pretty decent bloke.

 

Just the two of us(w/ sax man Washington) is one of them lifetime gems.

 

RIP & thanks, Mr Withers.

Otis is long gone. As is Aretha. Marvin too. Now Bill. Someone find Al Green and keep him safe. 

While you're looking for Al please don't forget Smokey... He'll need to be tucked away too!
