RIP Ritchie

Richie Havens has died, of a heart attack, at the age of 72.

Who can forget the intense and frenetic performance of “Freedom” that he gave, opening the 1969 Woodstock festival.

Seems to me we are losing to many of our music icons. I know that this is selfish of me, that none of us live forever and that we will always have the musical legacy that such as Richie leave behind.

My thoughts are with Richies family and friends.

Thanks to youtube we are able to relive those classic moments so here are a couple of reminders of his talent.
