A legend. IMHO he didn't receive the fame he deserved.

He received the respect from people who appreciate good music and musicians and that seems to be what mattered to him. Here's a couple of other nice tunes.

At woodstock, no one else was ready to go non stage so they told him
to keep playing. He was improvising and that was the first time that he played that song 'freedom".
That's cool.

yeah, he belted it out and realizing it was
original and in the spirit of the moment,
the beginning of the largest outdoor rock concert
the world had ever seen... he ACED it !

Jam on Richie -> i'm sure he's in the Choir
