A true American and a great folk singer/musician/song writer.

I'm forever grateful for his music and the spirit that went with it, even though he had to go. He's a legend.

A huge loss. I always considered him the heart and soul of America. There are others who fit that desciption too but Pete Seeger was a gentle giant.

In seventeen years of running a mixing console professionally, I can honestly say that no artist ever found my efforts more lacking or expressed it with less grace. Sorry I let you down Mr. Seeger, and please find peace wherever you are.

So typical of today's culturally starved USA. Hundreds of members on Talk Bass and only 11 made any mention of Pete. WOW!

Now, if it would have been Marcus Miller or Victor Wooten...............

Mickey Jones passed and no one gave a darn.

Nine decades of life is a long time.

Amen to that.

Pete's grand-niece used to work here at QSC. A while ago we started doing some Wednesday night jam sessions at Pat Quilter's (the "Q" in QSC) house in Laguna Beach with typically four to eight participants playing a wide range of instruments, mostly acoustic. One day in the lunch room Andrea asked me how the jam sessions were and who played. I gave her a brief run-down of the usual players who showed up and when I mentioned that one of the engineering guys played the banjo, she said that her great-uncle also plays the banjo and has written a lot of songs.

So I asked who her great-uncle is. She declined to tell me at first, saying she was sure I'd never heard of him. No, no, come on, tell me anyway maybe I have, I begged her. She answered, "OK, his name is Pete Seeger."

I think my jaw dropped into my lap at that moment.

"Your great uncle is Pete Seeger? Of course I've heard of him!"

She told me she hadn't seen him in years but remembered as a toddler sitting on his knee as he sang to her and bounced her and made her laugh. That was probably in Beacon, NY.

Or, as they say around here, "At the blacksmith's house, wooden brooms."

JK!

They probably won't make many more like Pete and Woody.
