Cant imagine the sheltered life one would have lived had he never heard at least one bar of "Lean On Me".
RIP

He wrote some great songs. Remember "Ain't No Sunshine"? A lot of people covered that also.

R.I.P.

One of my all time favorites as well.

Who Is He is a great song.

Just The Two Of Us with Grover Washington, Jr. was an absolute, absolute classic.

RIP Mr. Withers.

One of my favorite singers. Just a unique, authentic voice. His music was playing throughout my childhood and then again later in life. Those 2 songs stay on the playlist. Timeless.
