A Legend of a Life of Principles.  Pete Seeger was a MENSCH.  A True Human Being.

Requiem for Pete Seeger: Kisses Sweeter than Wine

When I review the old vids of Pete, the thing comes across most to me is the JOY he had in singing.  It is all over his body language, how he held his head up so high when he sang.  The Weavers stuff is just so HONEST.  So sad we don't have music like this anymore.  :'(

We had Weavers Albums in my house when I was a kid.  That is how I know of Pete Seeger.  That is how I remember him, as a kid listening to his first records.  I will never forget.

Ran across this. Love the way he works the audience. And a very young Arlo at the piano. This musta been like 1968 or so? Maybe earlier.

(Found a reference that said "late 70's". Guess I was wrong.)

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
