John Hardly Pete Seeger gets apology (14) RE: Pete Seeger gets apology 13 Feb 09


"This was the contradiction the poor blacklisters faced: The more they tried to target me the more they drummed up publicity for my concerts," Seeger told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home in Beacon, N.Y. "I like to misquote Thomas Jefferson in saying, 'The price of liberty is eternal publicity.'"

I agree with Pete. If not for the blacklist, Pete would be as famous today as Dave Guard. But with the blacklist and its publicity, Seeger is a national hero instead of a forgotten folksinger.
