One more flower gone

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageOn Jan. 27th at age 94 Pete Seeger gave up the ghost. Cosmic mariner, destination unknown. If there is such a place, then Pete Seeger has earned his place in heaven many times over. Pete Seeger was one of my personal heros, he taught me to play the banjo with his little instructional book and LP record I received from Jude’s dad along with a Harmony practice 5 string in 1970, (thanks Jules). He also had the major cajones to stand up to the House Un American Activity Committee in the 50’s telling McCarthy to kiss his ass all the while knowing that he would be shunned and black listed. His banjo and voice were weapons of mass destruction against hatred, bigotry, fascism, corruption, suppression of free speech and all injustice in our country while at the same time celebrating our freedom and democracy. God Speed Pete.
