Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Maybe Little Boxes was Pete Seeger's best known song as far as Martin Gibson knows, but he doesn't know much. Pete Seeger didn't write that song, but did he put together some of the best know songs of the 60s. Guantanamera, Turn Turn Turn, Golden Thread, lots of others. Some he wrote outright and some he took verses and put them to music. Either Martin Gibson doesn't know anything about Pete Seeger or he is just trying to get attention. What better way to get attention on a folk music forum than to badmouth someone like Pete Seeger? "I want some attention, I want some attention, I want some attention!"

Sad. Incurable.
