DBMITW: Bill Withers on BBC

Here's a complete 30 minute Bill Withers concert on BBC from 1973. I'm not sure who's playing drums with him— he gets almost zero screen time, and is severely under-lit. It's not James Gadson, doesn't really look like Al Jackson, and I don't know who else Withers might have been touring with at the time. If you know, please comment...

[UPDATE: Bethany-and-Joe in the comments tells us his name is Fred Casey, who I've never heard of, and about whom I can find no more info.]

Hey Todd, this bugged me as well so I did some digging- found somewhere listing him as Fred Casey, who I don't really know anything about.

Thanks Joe and/or Bethany! I'll update the text of the post...

Hey Todd, no problem. It's Joe Burress from Memphis, we spoke through e-mails. As always great work with the blog.
