During such a sad time, the news of the passing of Bill Withers at the age of 81 brings altogether fresh pangs of pain.

His music came straight from his heart and so easily penetrated the hearts of his audience.

By all accounts a decent and humble man.

Thank you for enriching our lives, Bill.

I'm very sad to hear about his passing. His song "Lean on Me" is among my favorite songs of all-time. May he R.I.P.

Sorry to hear this . He was a good singer /songwriter in his day composing some classics like Lean On Me and Grandma's Hands . Sadly , worthy musicians often get lost in the shuffle due to changing tastes and demographics , and we don't hear new music from them.
I believe he was married to the star of Room 222, whose name escapes me at the moment .
RIP
