Havens died April 22, 2013.
Yeah, I was about to say.
Sorry, Frank. Sometimes my trigger finger is too quick. (You did post an RIP with a different obit. in 2013. So we're not late. Just forgetful. Oh, well, it doesn't hurt to remember Mr Havens.)
Hey, he deserves belated tributes. I remember seeing/hearing him perform when I was in college way back in the Paleolithic Age when folk music and Richie Havens were big deals. I was, of course, impressed with his unique style.
It's funny. I thought he had passed away earlier, but didn't bother to check. Ah, well. The Navajo always incorporate a flaw into a blanket that is being woven, so as not to offend the gods by trying to be perfect. I don't have to worry about that.
