Remembering Woodstock opener Richie Havens

If I could go back in time to be a part of the Woodstock era. Richie Havens the man who opened up the festival in 1969 has passed away suddenly at the age of 72. Richie wasn’t supposed to be the opener at Woodstock, it was supposed be a band called Sweetwater but due to some issues the band was dealing with day Richie opened up the festival. The rest you can say is Rock and Roll History.

Let’s check out some great performances from Richie…
