Soul Legend Bill Withers on His Music and Life

Friday, February 05, 2010

Best known for his classics "Lean on Me," "Just the Two of Us," "Ain't No Sunshine," and "Lovely Day," soul legend Bill Withers is the subject of a new documentary called "Still Bill."

We talk with Withers about his new film, and about the path his life has taken — from growing up under the care of his beloved grandmother to music superstardom to quirky conversations he's had with strangers in Roscoe's Fried Chicken and Waffles.

To order an advanced copy of "Still Bill" on DVD or to find a nearby screening, visit the "Still Bill" website.
