Raised in Dayton, Minnesota, McLean's work in the local music business began after she graduated from St. Cloud State in 1973 with a degree in speech and communication. In her early years she worked for rock promoter Randy Levy, and secured bookings for the Suicide Commandos and Curtiss A before moving on to become a talent buyer for Duffy's Nightclub.

To begin a remembrance of George Jones, one need look no further than his song lyrics. "He stopped loving her today, they placed a wreath upon his door." "Yabba Dabba Doo, the King is gone, and so are you." Jones died this morning at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, after being hospitalized there last week for treatment of a fever and irregular blood pressure. He was 81.

The fact that for years no one was certain how long Richie Havens played at Woodstock tells you he belonged to a different age. The 28-year-old folk singer from Brooklyn was not scheduled to be the event's opening act. In fact, he wasn't even stage manager John Morris' first choice for an emergency replacement when traffic snarls held up many of the acts. (And Tim Hardin was found too stoned to perform.) The largely unknown Havens was given the spot intended for Sweetwater, who had first caught ears with a heavy psychedelic take on a familiar spiritual, "Motherless Child."
