To All The Ships At Sea
This is extremely difficult for me to write. We have been photographing Richie Haven’s on and off over the years for a long time. We stopped counting the number of concerts a long time ago. Richie on stage was one of the greatest performers of our time. Back stage he was a just a regular guy. The last time he called me he asked permission to use three of my photos in a new book. I will have a follow up blog and a tribute to Richie in a few months. Sing in Peace Brother…
I spoke with a NASA scientist a few years back and we were discussing radio telescopes and he explained to me that a note played or sung will go on for infinity so I know Richie’s music will continue on…

Richie had more to do with my getting over my racist upbringing that anything else. The man spoke to me when he sang and made my ears very happy. I will miss you Mr. Havens.
I understand, Joe. I was heartbroken upon learning of Richie’s death. Too soon…he left us too soon!
