"Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone..." And now he is. Richie Havens has passed away at age 72, but this piece of music will live forever.
If anyone is still looking for music to put on an interstellar probe, I nominate this.
I was born on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay
Maryland and Virginia have faded away
And I keep thinking tomorrow is coming today
So I am endlessly waiting...
—A. Duritz and Counting Crows, "St. Robinson and His Cadillac Dream"
