In Memoriam: Richie Havens

Richie Havens (1941-2013) died Monday of a heart attack.

I first saw Richie when he performed at my college sometime prior to Woodstock. Needless to say we were all blown away! A remarkable musician, he was the opening act at Woodstock- because everyone else was delayed by the traffic jam.

Freedom, Richie. Freedom.
