He died today at the age of 72 as a result of a heart attack.

I don't know if his name means much to most of you, but he was a folk singer who gained his most fame for appearing as the opening act at the original Woodstock festival. Part of his performance was featured in the Woodstock movie.

He was an intense performer with a strong voice and accompanied himself with an acoustic guitar.

Havens did a three hour set at Woodstock because musicians who were supposed to follow him were stuck in traffic. During that time, he ran out of material to play and as legend has it, ad libbed what was to become his signature song, "Freedom".

RIP
