The ol' Commie kicked it.

He lived a long fruitful life.

Never not in the mood to put on of his discs on.

My Woodie Guthrie Tribute Concert disc he was instrumental [no pun intended] in is one of my all time faves.

Call me a relic call me what'cha will
Say I'm old fashioned say I'm over the hill
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock and roll

Ignorant post of the week.
Bravo.

Pete Seeger was a cultural icon, historic figure in both American music and politics. He sang with Woody Guthrie, was blacklisted by McCarthy, promoted recycling and ecology before just about anybody else, was a musical ambassador all over the world for America, and was a damn fine musician. He was intelligent, kind, caring, humorous and gifted. We should all have such a full and meaningful life.

Here's Pete playing with Johnny Cash:

He came to NAU and gave a performance to our folklore class; played the autoharp among other instruments...awesome. I'm not and wasn't into that kind of music at all, but this guy so impressed me I got some of my friends to attend a performance he was giving while there...friends made fun of me...until they heard him. RIP. Got to do what he loved for most of his life; we should all be so lucky.

Ironic because Colbert beat Seeger for best spoken word Grammy over Seeger for that very book on the day of his death.

That was Bob Segar



Pete was an old granola eating tree hugger who hung around the backlots of the music scene back after the beatniks and before the hippies. A Hero in the coffee house culture of the campus riot days of the 70s. Bad Voice. not much with a guitar but his kooky fans wanted a message man

You know how fast he is going to fall into the ground? "Like a Rock"
