GUEST,kendall Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) (220* d) RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) 28 Jan 14


I've dreaded this day. My first encounter with Pete was listening to the Weavers. Then in 1969 we met at the home of our mutual friend, Gordon Bok. Pete gave me my first banjo on that long neck vega of his. I was hooked. We crossed paths a number of times, then when Dan Schatz came up with this memorial cd for Utah Phillips, I asked Pete if he would contribute. He sang the song he wrote for the cd on the telephone! What a hoot.

He was charged with Contempt of Congress! How many of us would qualify for that? He didn't hide behind the 5th amendment, he stood on the FIRST amendment!
One of my few heroes. RIP Pete.
