  • Bill Withers - "Use Me"

    Yo!



    Any of you well-schooled cats know who played on Bill Withers' song "Use Me?" I searched around online but could find almost nothing about his studio band except that Stephen Stills did a lot of lead playing....



    I had to learn the song for a new cover band, and I'll be danged if that isn't some VERY tasty groove playing with quality dynamics. Mmmmm.

    I'd guess James Gadson.

    Check out Bill's other videos where he is playing. Solid as can be.
    I used to have a handle on life, but I gotta jiggle it every now and then.

        Yup. He's the only drummer credited for that album.

                my band regularly plays this one, although I play guitar in this group. It's an extremely tasty song

                        If you get a chance, check out the DVD "Still Bill". A really good look at his life in and out of the biz, and about the biz itself. Interesting story.
                        I used to have a handle on life, but I gotta jiggle it every now and then.
