Thread Name: Pete Seeger's Axe- fact or urban legend?
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Axe- fact or urban legend?
He was on TV once, way back, Early or Mid Sixties I think and he had his big log on stage with him but he was using a sledge hammer not an axe.
As I once made my living swinging a hammer, it is my opinion that he made a complete fool of himself. By stopping in the middle of swinging his hammer to sing he both destroyed the rhythm of his hammering and that of his singing.
