RIP Richie Havens

Rest in peace to another legend. Richie Havens died of a heart attack on Monday at age 72.

Richie Havens was one of the musical legends that played at Woodstock in 1969, his most famous song, “Freedom.”

My husband Dennis and I had the honor of meeting him a few years ago when he played at Crossroads in Garwood. As we were walking in, he was standing out in front getting a breath of fresh air, so we said hello. He was a very kind man.

Here is his song Freedom to honor him on this sad day:

And his version of Here Comes the Sun

God bless his family, friends and fans in this time of sorrow.
