VERY much enjoyed the article and the video. Thanks to jake and intheghetto for posting. That is a terrific quote. "I'm not in the music business, I'm in the communication business. That's what it's all about for me."

Perhaps it's worth noting that Elvis opened at the International on July 31, 1969 and Woodstock happened on August 15-18, 1969. There was war and death all around, but music helped get us through. It was an interesting time.

Thoughts for Ritchie Haven tonight.

Oh, more sad news.

He was very special. May he find peace.
