Thread Name: Pete Seeger Evening on BBC Radio 2
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger Evening on BBC Radio 2
I've heard this "Bruuuuuce" story before. I think it's a folk tale put about to make you think people weren't booing Springsteen, which I'm certain they were - the whole concert was a dreadful thing to do to Pete Seeger's songs, and if I'd been there, I'd have booed as well.
What there wasn't enough of in the evening was Pete's wonderful banjo playing, and singing of good old folk songs. His touch on the banjo was world class, and inspired me and many others to take it up, and should have been more featured.
