-Richie Havens

"You don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note."

^Can’t imagine that happened too often! R.I.P. Paco – this is so very beautiful … the second movement from Concierto de Aranjuez (aka Concerto d’Orangejuice in some irreverent circles ) …

In case I don't get to the Born on this Day department on time - Happy Birthday to Roderick David Stewart who is quoted as saying ... 

"Instead of getting married again, I'm going to find a woman I don't like and just give her a house."


Not sure if that was after his most recent divorce but I suspect not. The man is an incorrigible serial monogamist. 

Saw him in concert way back when - he put on a helluva show - still have the 'programme'!!
