Deaths: Woodstock and the Toucher

RICHIE HAVENS, 72

Died April 22nd.  Noted guitarist and cover-song interpreter.  First on stage at Woodstock and played extra long as other artists having trouble getting there.  Played extra-long as well.

Who can forget that great song he sang "Freedom" shown in the movie, that robe and those tapping sandals.

Whenever I heard him afterward, I thought about this song.


CHRISSY AMPHETT, 53

Lead singer of Australian band Divinyls with their one big hit "I Touch Myself" back in the 90s.  Has it been that long ago?  Definitely a provocative song.
