William James Edwards "Bill" Lee III (born July 23, 1928) is an American musician. He has played the bass for many artists including Cat Stevens, Harry Belafonte, Chad Mitchell Trio, Gordon Lightfoot, Aretha Franklin, Odetta, Simon and Garfunkel, and Bob Dylan. On the original release of Dylan's classic song "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," Lee on bass guitar is the only musician performing other than Dylan himself. Lee was born in Snow Hill, Alabama, the son of Alberta G., a concert pianist, and Arnold W. Lee, a musician. With his first wife, Jackie, he had five children, including film director Spike Lee (born 1957), actress Joie Lee (born 1962), and filmmaker Cinqu Lee (born 1966) and has composed original music for many of his son's films, including She's Gotta Have It, School Daze, Do the Right Thing and Mo' Better Blues. With his second wife, Susan, he has one son, Arnold Lee, who plays alto saxophone.
