I want to go check out this movie, Still Bill about Bill Withers. The clip on Vimeo is pretty sweet. I can’t believe it was playing at the IFC up until 2 days ago and I missed it… What is this life??? :]
Here is a blurb about the flick from the IFC website, “The story of a 33-year-old Navy vet from Slab Fork, WV, who became, almost overnight, a ’70s soul legend, STILL BILL is an intimate portrait of Bill Withers, the artist behind the classics “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean On Me,” “Lovely Day” and “Just the Two of Us.” Through archival and new concert footage and interviews with music greats, his family and closest friends, the film reveals the man behind the music.”
I’ll let you know what I think when I find it.
