Topic: Pete Seeger's Birthday

Yesterday was Pete Seeger's birthday. He's now 93 years old. I listened to his kid's songs when I was little. He's one of my dad's heroes and has been honored as an American Master. You can watch a documentary about him on PBS, but here's a clip from that show:

I love Pete Seeger.  He is a music icon up there with the best.  Happy Birthday Pete.

You can see all my video covers on [url][/url]
I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Only the best musicians are born on this day. And I can assure you that I am not biased in any way, of course. lol

Pete Seeger kept folk musice alive during the McCarthy communist witch hunts of the 1950's, by playing to classrooms, when he couldn't get commercial gigs due to the blacklist. He is the godfather of the folk movement in the late 50's and throught the 60's, still influencing artists.
Happy Birthday, Pete. Keep telling it like it is.

Hank repleis, after a short pause: "Well, what else is there?"

His get up and go, keeps getting up and going!  I hope I have half his energy when or if I reach 93.
