The tributes just go on and on...
As they should. Pete was just a wonderful and fascinating guy. I hadn't seen
or talked with him in some years prior to his death. When Toshi died, it was
doubtful that he'd be around much longer. He wasn't.
Pete was full of history, especially in music's impact on all phases of life
and civilization. In my case, I don't play music, but I am in entertainment,
and Pete was always full of ideas on how to make my entertaining things have
more impact. A lot of what he offered was outdated, but were incredible to
listen to. I know that I'm far from the only one who took some of those old
ideas and, with some tweaking, made them relevant and impactful. And now WE
are the old guys who are willing to pass these thoughts on. I guess Pete
achieved immortality in at least that sense, and probably others.
Pete made plenty of mistakes in his long life, but never seemed regretful.
You've got to speak up if you want to be heard, and you can't always be
right. He had a good average, though. Real good.
Let the tributes continue......
I love Pete Seeger and always will. I found this a while back:
Pete Seeger and his family in 1921. Pete is the babe in arms. The
classical music to rural areas.
