Richie Havens Has Died

Richie Havens, who famously opened the legendary Woodstock festival in 1969 with a two-hour set, has died at the age of 72 of a heart attack.

Havens performed for several decades and recorded his version of "Here Comes the Sun".  It became his only hit, reaching #16 in 1971.  Havens underwent kidney surgery several years ago and never fully recovered.
