I never cared for him personally, not being much of a folkie, but still I'm surprised at the lack of news concerning the death of Richie Havens, a world-famous singer and songwriter who was as big as you can get back in the sixties. He opened Woodstock, for crying out loud. Seems like it might be somewhere in the news besides my morning Wall Street Journal, which means he must have died yesterday. Havens is most famous for his song, "Motherless Child," more popularly known as "Freedom."
How odd that a newspaper actually brought me some news.
