Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Ge Ron, it's hard when your heroes bite the dust, isn't it.

Political folk music really isn't my thing, basically. Yes, his voice has deteriorated, his banjo playing has deteriorated, and his IMPACT on music and politics saw it's limelight decades ago to all but a few old time hero worshipper folkies.

His song "Little Boxes" will always be the song I hate the most. He had no right to ridicule what was the WWII vet's American dream of building and buying a home for his family on the GI bill.

His support recently of the Palestinian causes hasn't won him any friends either, of course except his far left save the world from Israel pals.
