Thread Name: Pete Seeger's Axe- fact or urban legend?
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Axe- fact or urban legend?
Well now!

In a BBC documentary he was interviewed and he said "If I had got an axe I would have chopped the damn cables"

But he was referring to the volume, not the instrument. He claimed he couldn't "hear" the tune.

So the story has suffered the folk process. Enough verbiage in there to hang a myth on.
