Folk singer Richie Havens, whose up-tempo rendition of George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun” was a musical centerpiece of the Woodstock festival 20 years ago, reportedly hopes to do a live reunion festival in Moscow that would feature such acts as John Sebastian (formerly of the Lovin’ Spoonful), Joe Cocker and the newly risen Jefferson Airplane. Havens’ production company would produce the concert special for MTV Networks, which operates the MTV and VH-1 all-music cable services. MTV and VH-1 are already planning an extensive festival in July and August to note the anniversary of the September, 1969, Woodstock festival, symbol of the “love generation” of the ‘60s, which took place in upstate New York.
