Pretty major figure in music for a while there. Always seemed like a good man, very talented.

RIP.
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.

That sucks. I grew up a huge fan of his, and think ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ is one of the greatest songs ever written or recorded (so much so, I cringe every time I hear someone covering it). He lived a long, full life which I’m happy for, but it hurts to see him go. We’ve had a rough few years, losing some greats along the way. For me, Bill Withers — though not very prolific in his output — has made a difference in the musical landscape that won’t be forgotten. RIP. :-*
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

I LOVE his music. I saw a doc about him a few years back and he did seem like a super nice dude. My kids know Lovely Day as “the secret life of pets” song from the movie. I try to convince them otherwise, but what do I know?
