The legendary Bill Withers speaks on songwriting, sampling & legendary concerts.

For students of soul, Bill Withers–as Questlove so aptly put it–is our Everyman. An airplane mechanic who never played an instrument until he picked up a guitar and decided to teach himself songwriting–and wrote Ain’t No Sunshine on on of his first demos out–Withers also never quit his day-job, even after it was clear he had a hit and a record deal on his hands. More hits followed– Lean On Me, Grandma’s Hands, Use Me, Lovely Day, Just The Two of Us, just to name a few.
