    Richie Havens, legendary guitarist and folk singer who opened Woodstock festival, dead at 72


    Richie Havens, a seminal member of the New York folk scene of the '60s, died Monday morning from a sudden heart attack.
    He was 72.
    Havens, widely admired for his briskly rhythmic guitar style and richly textured voice, became a part of history for serving as the opening performer at the Woodstock festival in 1969.

    That's the way to go. Sudden heart attack.
    Grab the ol' chest and collapse.
    Fuck that hanging around nursing homes bullshit.

    I was a fan. RIP Ritchie.
