Good name for a dead bloke.
 
How do you make a duck into a soul singer?

Put him in a microwave until his bill withers

Now with his mother Googie.
 
Once upon a time I could hold every note singing along to Lovely Day, then I discovered Smirnoff and ran out of lungs.

RIP Bill, you wrote and sung some beautiful songs.

Spookily, I sang 'Ain't No Sunshine ' in front of 80 ( very kind) people awhile back, just before we got locked down......eesh.

Deceptively simple chord structure...takes soul to do well. I don't have one. ( redhead gene)

Rest in peace big guy

 
I’ve been a Heavy Rock fan all my life, but I think Lovely Day by Bill Withers is one of the most life affirming songs ever written.
RIP.
 
Always one of my favourites. This is worth watching if you have a spare hour and it shows the basic decency of the man.

Thanks, that was superb.

I knew little about him as anything other than a musician, but developed an impression, from his music, that he had to be a really decent human being.

Well, that documentary more than validated it. Throughout, you could see everyone got so much pleasure from being in his company.

I thought for the longest time, he was singing “A n a l Sunshine”.

RIP and thanks for the great music.
