    I was reading somewhere his death wasn’t from the current pandemic, he had other issues. Anyone else see that?

    Such a loss. Lean On Me is one of my favorite songs ever, and the man had the smoothest voice and amazing rhythms.

    I've been thinking about "Ain't No Sunshine" lately (it's turned into an earworm) as my wife's recuperating 100 miles away at her sister's place. Then, I see this on the news today. Sad. He wrote some simple, yet deep, songs.
    He died at 81, due to heart issues. Vaya con Dios, Bill.

    Bill Withers' stuff was classy, with kind of a unique, iconic hint of melancholy to it.... Sorry he's gone, but his music will live.

    Bill Wither's music was part of the soundtrack of my life. So sad to hear he has passed. RIP Bill.
