“…some times in our lives…”

Back in the seventies, the top of the music chart usually featured a singer named Bill Withers…now, some of you may remember the name…most would remember his music…

And a new documentary that you need to remember to check out is called “Still Bill”…it’s all about his life, and it shows that, not only does Bill still remember his music, but also where he came from…

Of course…if I were to mention such song titles as “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “Use Me”, “Better Off Dead”, “Lovely Day”, and “Lean On Me”, you could probably pull out your old a.m. transistor radio and start singing along…

Yea…those were all Bill, and plenty more, and, although he created these wonderful masterpieces, while watching this video, you discover that, being ‘Bill Withers’ is simply about being a guy named Bill…

He takes us through a tour of his old hometown, talks with his family and friends, relives special memories, and leaves us with more of a feeling about the man than his music…

…though, of course, the music is certainly part of this man, as he touches on what he loves about the industry, and what he feels has ruined the industry as well…

But it’s all water off a duck’s back when it comes to what matters most, and what matters to Bill Withers is, not so much about being remembered, but simply the pleasure of remembering…
