RIP Richie Havens

It’s a sad day today. Richie Havens, who opened the 1969 Woodstock with Freedom, has died of a heart attack.

I watched the Woodstock video projected onto a screen while sitting on a beach in Goa, about six years ago – and felt completely euphoric. Haven’s Freedom changed my life. I then heard him play live at the Big Chill a few years later and he rocked.

RIP Richie.
