    Hey All:

    I was digging this BBC concert of Bill Withers from 1973, and I'm wondering, does anyone know who the guy in the back playing lead guitar is?

    This might sound crazy, but it kind of looks like James Taylor.

    Man, some good stuff.
  2. No clue about the players, but I've seen that clip a bunch of times and it never gets old. Very underrated artist.

    Ah, thank you! I feel kinda dumb for not waiting for the credits...

    That's a pretty cool sound from the non-split-coil p bass too!

    There is a documentary about Mr. Withers and his work with the Stuttering Foundation. It is pretty much his life in his words and he is a most extraordinary individual both within the music life and outside that life. A very fulfilling and informative way to kill a couple hours.

    Snuffy Walden was/is a great player, anybody remember Stray Dog? He does a lot of soundtrack work now I believe.
