Today is a sad day in the Music industry as Singer/Songwriter Bill Withers has passed away at the age of 81. Bill sang some of the greatest R&B songs of all time including “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “Use Me”, and “Lean On Me”. His family made a statement this week and said it was from “Heart Complications.”
Other songs include “Lovely Day” (1977) and “Just the Two of Us” (1981), among other hits. But after the 1985 album “Watching You Watching Me,” frustrated with the music business, Mr. Withers stopped recording and performing.
He is survived by his wife, Marcia, his son Todd, and daughter, Kori.
We at AEE would like to offer our condolences to the Withers family.
