Michael Lang, 77, co-producer of the original 1969 Woodstock music festival, passed away in January. Over three sometimes-rainy days, more than 30 acts - including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, The Band, and the Grateful Dead - performed around the clock to a 400,000-strong audience, most of whom watched for free and camped onsite in the mud. The festival was documented in the 1970 film “Woodstock,” which won an Oscar. Lang also produced the rebooted Woodstock '94 and '99 festivals.

Robert McFarlane, 84, a White House adviser who tapped Saudi royals to fund a covert war in Nicaragua and flew on a secret mission to sell arms to Iran in the scandal that shook Ronald Reagan's presidency, died in May. Reagan appointed him national security adviser in 1983 mainly because he was the least controversial choice.
