    I could say a lot, but I'll just say that Pete Seeger may be gone but the music that he wrote and sang will live forever.

    I was kinda suprised he died today. I really thought he had been dead for a while.

    RIP to him, even if he was a socialist activist.

    I am not sure if I agree with his politics. His songs I liked very much.

    Wow that's a fairly long life for a musician from that era.

    He made great music. It seems like the left often has the best music except for Johnny Cash that is.

    Pete Seeger fought for equal rights for all and against war his entire life.

    He was a great man.

    He wrote and sang a lot of great songs:

    He may be gone but the music that he wrote and sang will live forever.

    My condolences to the family but one can never truly feel sad for someone who lives into their 90s and has had a fruitful and meaningful life.
