Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Sorry for the blank, I hit the wrong key.
I have never had the pleasure of seeing Pete live, and although I have loved his music, my respect for him comes more from his dedication to the cause of helping others improve their lot in life. The music , of course, gave him the openings , but his spirit runs much deeper. Many so called stars of music only use their talent to increase their personal wealth. The man could have made a vast fortune with his talent and name but chose instead to stand for his beliefs. For that , Pete I salute you!
