Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Thank you, Don, for speaking eloquently for most all of us. I sure wish I had a great personal story about Pete, but no such luck. For those of us whose lives were impacted by Pete's music and all that he stands for, all we can do is be thankful, and you're right- sort of mournful. Through his music and his integrity, I feel that I somehow know him- he has a place in my heart. I'll bet many many folks feel this way. I would call him one of the Great Men of the 20th Century. It is, of course, sad to see someone we love get old, but bowing out gracefully is exactly what I would expect from Pete Seeger. He may not be up there on the stage with that amazing enthusiasm and charisma, but his music will live on for many generations.
