RIP Bill Withers

Recommended Posts

A Legend that to my knowledge never graced the festival.   Passed away at 81 due to a heart issues

Sad news indeed. He pretty much retired from music in the 80s, which was a shame as he certainly would have been more widely revered as a legend by a new generation had he continued, and his back catalogue is superb. He would have gone down a storm on the pyramid.

Personally I love the Live at Carnegie Hall album. One of the greatest live albums ever. Well worth your time.

Absolutely gutted about this. This man's music meant so much to so many.

There’s an extremely good video, that I’ve not been able to track down whilst doing a quick search, of the Stone circle on Monday morning in recent years. Lovely day begins playing on some speakers and everyone’s dancing and singing along despite the festival being over.

 

RIP

How do you turn a duck into a soul legend? 

Stick it in the microwave until it’s Bill Withers.

There goes one of my favourite Partridge lines:

“That was Bill Withers, who thank the lord, is still with us”.

Always just thought everyone was in agreement that this was Bill at his finest, seen very little of it recently though.

Not a competition obviously and God bless the guy, RIP

As far as I'm concerned, this is one of the best cover versions ever committed to tape.

Sad news that Lord Bath has died after contracting this horrible virus. Wasn’t he a friend of Michael? Sure I remember that.
