To Absent Friends: Richie Havens

Another pop culture left us yesterday when Richie Havens passed away at the age of 71.  A tremendous guitarist with a most distinctive voice, Havens was the opening act at Woodstock in 1969, and I remember him fondly from my college years.

Here he is in the song that was his biggest commercial hit, George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun".

RIP Richie Havens.
