Richie Havens, folk singer who opened Woodstock, has died
Folk and rock singer, songwriter and guitarist Richie Havens reportedly passed away Monday at the age of 72.
Havens was perhaps best known for his three-hour opening set at the Woodstock Festival in 1969.
Over the course of his career, Havens recorded 21 studio albums and toured for nearly 45 years, until last year when he was sidelined with complications from kidney surgery.
