Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's 85th birthday
I am a week or so late, but Happy Birthday anyway.
My Dad used to play your records when I was growing up and despite the corruption of brain cell activity during my youth and beyond, the songs have never left me. He would play your records at 6:30 in the morning to get us going before school, and of course any other moment he could after we came home from school. My favorite record had to be the first live double lp you did with Arlo at Carnagie Hall. Every song you sang together is memorable and there has never been a better sounding reporte with an audience on a live album. Thank you for being such a great musical influence on me and the world. So...
Nations are warring, and Bush is vexed...I hope you stick around to see what happens next...
