R.I.P. Pete Seeger

A life worth celebrating I think.

I've been watching his appearance on the Johnny Cash show in 1970 where JC comments that "a lot of the older songs had more to say than a lot of the songs that are written now" 

It hasn't improved much has it? Given events in the House of Lords today there's an ever greater need for artists to say something.

Then again, sometimes it's good to say nothing at all ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DonH2m_0Lk

 

yes, so long pete

but at 94, he did ok

still performing last year

one fewer of the good ones now though, no question

and you're right about the gagging law

astonishing how the mainstream press has ignored it

no mention of it at all on the bbc today
