Met him 34 years ago on his 66th birthday.
I met him a few times,mainly at Clearwater & Democratic events,
from the late 1960s onward (my father had known him since the 1950s).

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

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 A lot of what he offered was outdated, but were incredible to listen to.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:

https://stanflouride.com/2016/08/27/baby-pete-seeger-1921/

Pete Seeger and his family in 1921. Pete is the babe in arms. The
family is about to start on a cross-country tour intended to bring
classical music to rural areas.

That must have been a fun drive in 1921.
