i had the pleasure at seeing richie havens a couple times with the last time, a couple years ago, at the Leaf Festival in Black Mountain, NC. He was amazing, and probably one of the best shows i have ever seen. He ended his set with a cover of Pink floyds’ (the gilmour version) The Turning Away. An amazing song, but in the hands of this gifted musician, storyteller, activist — un forgettable. The whole crowd was one big goosebump. So long richie, you were one of the best. Rest in peace.
