RIP Pete Seeger

Man,

This guy has been a big part of the soundtrack of my life and my son's I'm glad we will continue to have so much of his music and that he was around so long to make so much but it's still sad to think that he won't be making any more.

What a great man.  He had a great life.  His grandson said that he was out chopping firewood 10 days ago.

Had to explain to my lady who he was. Told her that he was responsible for at least half of the music of the 60's. She though I was exaggerating.

Thank you for the music and the humanity Pete. You made such beautiful noise.

Just glad I had a music teacher in 1963 7th grade who was brave enough to introduce Pete Seeger (& others) to me.  Thank you, Pete.  And thank you, Mr. Weldon.
