It is indeed a sad day. Pete had an enormous influence over here in England as well, from his visits, especially in about 1964 when he did a concert in London which gave a great boost to the rapidly expanding folk song movement, and in the way he inspired others by his own example to sing along in the choruses and to sing about justice. I saw him in concert just once - on his last visit to England for sister Peggy's 70th birthday concert in London. A treasured memory.
