CLEVELAND — Bill Withers, the Raleigh County native whose “Ain’t No Sunshine,” ruled AM radio in 1971, showed a completely different side to himself in Cleveland on Saturday, April 18.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Stevie Wonder did the honors.

It was an honor said Withers, who is now 76.

While he was serious in his appreciation, he still couldn’t help but have some fun with the music industry he left in the 1980s.

“This must be the largest AA meeting in the Western Hemisphere,” he deadpanned from the stage of Cleveland’s Public Hall.
