Recently the movie “Still Bill” about Bill Withers was released on DVD. Below DVD trailer includes a snippet of a Sting interview.
Withers? career basically occurred in the 1970s. ?Ain?t No Sunshine? was his first hit (and covered a couple of times by Sting), reaching No. 3 in 1971. ?Lean On Me,? from Withers? 1972 album Still Bill, topped the charts that year and gave the title to the 1989 movie after Club Nouveau took it to the top again in 1987. Little has been heard from him since, as he withdrew from the show business spotlight to focus on family life in Los Angeles.
Viewers are finding the film?which features interviews with Withers? family and Dr. Cornel West, Sting, Angelique Kidjo, and Jim James of My Morning Jacket–through word-of-mouth and Internet searching.
