Did You Know?
When I'm offered a role, I look at what I think I can do with it. I look to see if I can project myself into it.
Conceived and co-wrote the well known song "Handsome Johnny" with Richie Havens
. As the opening act for the original Woodstock, Havens performed "Handsome Johnny," as the 8th song in that historic first set. According to Havens, "...(Gossett) had gotten it up to the 'Dunkirk war'...I brought it up to date..." (From liner notes in The Best of Richie Havens CD, 1993).
Deep, commanding voice.
