Subject: Is Peter Yarrow Sick?
From: GUEST,amergin

I just watched Peter Yarrow on a local program, here in Portland. Apparently, he's in town for some children's thing. Anyway, he looked really old. I know he is up there in the years, but he did not look healthy, he was skinny, weak in appearance. In fact, when he sang or talked he sounded rather feeble, it gave the impression of him being older than he is. It makes me wonder if something's up, healthwise. Does anyone know anything about that?

Earlier this year a polyp was found when he had a colonoscopy. He even wrote a song about it and it can be found at YouTube. Could not find further information Googling. We can only hope it was indeed removed early enough, and that he is and will be okay.

Give the guy a break ... he is approaching 80 ... and surpassed the promised three score and ten.



What is YOUR interest? And why should it concern the UK?

Sincerely,


We are ALL getting older .... and many MCats wish to get thin.

Hey, Garg, the guy is 72 years old. Is that "approaching 80"? Peter Yarrow has always been slight of stature, and he has seemed a little frail the last few years.

By the way, both of the people who posted above you are from the US.

-Joe-


...and while we're speaking of colonoscopies, take a listen to the Colo-Rectal Surgeon Song.

Guest, I'm from the UK and, to answer your question why we might be interested in Peter Yarrow.

Great person, great musician who has given us, and the world, many hours of pleasure in what is, sometimes, a difficult place to live, lifting spirits and, also, making us think. Not something everyone has achieved.

Cheers

Sylvia

Music is universal. Peter Yarrow writes great music. QED.

What Sylvia and Rapparee said.

And, GUEST, the "promised three score and ten" is probably a figure derived by averaging in all the people who die in infancy, childhood, and at other times due to things having nothing to do with age.   If you're alive and healthy at 50, your life expectancy is probably considerably longer than 20 more years.

Also, Guest, just to point out that which is obvious -- the Mudcat Cafe is hosted in Pennsylvania, USA. There are members from around the world, including places like Ghana, Singapore and Australia. It is not US-centric, UK-centric, or anything other than music-centric (although it might not look like it at times).

No, if it's centric anything it's EC-centric....Also, he does look alot older than 72.

Here's an article about Peter's Oct. 7, 2010 free children's concert at The Monkey And The Rat which is owned by his son Christopher.   DK if the accompanying photo is current, but in it he doesn't look different, age-wise, from most of the other folkie guys (or other guys) I know who are in the 65-75 y o range.   But if he's lost a lot of weight recenty, maybe from a cancer treatment, that might well make his face look older.

The "promised" three score years and ten is Old Testament. Promised by God, after some human transgressions, post Methuselah, such that human lifespans were being cut down -- rather like having to toil and experience pain after being kicked out of Eden.

Hey, fair enough question, but don't jump to conclusions.

Peter has always "burned the candle at both ends," staying on the road 25 days a month, flying between time zones, staying up late, and getting up early. He's always been able to function on very little sleep, sneaking in his "power naps" when he needs them. Most of us lose the stamina to keep those kind of hours in our 20's or 30's. He's still trying to keep his normal pace; maybe age is finally showing.

I saw him last month and thought he looked fine. His energy levels may fluctuate more than they did years ago, but he's still a joy to watch.

About ten years ago Peter Yarrow and his daughter Bethany gave a concert at the Folk Center in Mountain View during the annual Folk Festival. In my 30 years at the Folk Center no one ever did more to promote a concert than Peter. We had access to Peter and his personal office as well as the booking agency, he did telephone interviews, and when we arrived in town from the airport we drove through the town square where the most action from the festival was occurring and he got out of the car, mixed with the crowd and did a short impromptu set on the outside stage. He even invited a youngster around ten years old who he met and jammed with on the square to perform with him on the evening concert stage. I was certainly gratified to find that someone I admired as an artist was also a practical and gracious person. The concert with Peter and Bethany and Rufus was also one of the best concerts I have ever experienced.

I am not surprised at all that people care about Peter Yarrow. I hope that his health is strong and he can keep on gracing people's lives.
