Ain't No Sunshine

So sad to read just now that Bill Withers has died.

This was one of my all time favourite ballads.

Many memories of my late teenage years.

  1. I know the song but couldn't remember the face. A real classic. I am enjoying reading all the blogs tonight and listening to music and laughing at jokes. RIP Bill Withers

  3. It's a long way from Slab Fork, West Virginia to L.A.. And he also wrote "Lean On Me". Iconic.

  4. I just read a bit in today's Times about him - apparently he was sitting in a restaurant when he heard two folk nearby talking about him so he went over and introduced himself. They didn't believe him, saying his skin wasn't dark enough!

  5. Thanks everyone for reading and commenting. He seems to have been very unassuming and low key and not widely known, however most people who were around in the 70s would recognise his music.
