Yes indeed. I've always had so much love for him.

“I decline to discuss, under compulsion, where I have sung, and who has sung my songs, and who else has sung with me, and the people I have known. I love my country very dearly, and I greatly resent this implication that some of the places that I have sung and some of the people that I have known, and some of my opinions, whether they are religious or philosophical, or I might be a vegetarian, make me any less of an American. I will tell you about my songs, but I am not interested in telling you who wrote them, and I will tell you about my songs, and I am not interested in who listened to them.”

A quote stolen from my friend's FB. RIP.

I grew up listening to his songs: my dad was a huge fan. RIP.

I had the entirety of his testimony in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee tacked to my door in college.

(these are the times when I sound like I should be 30 years older than I actually am)

That is awesome, lycophyte.
I can't even know how much he influenced me. If you could pull things out of my brain how much would be Pete Seeger songs. All the good conservative Christians who raised me liked Pete Seeger somehow, and I'm really grateful for that.

He was a great man, who lived a life that really mattered by advocating peaceful protest. And 94 years is a pretty good innings. What could be a better epitaph than that? Via con Dios.

he was a really important part of my childhood too, and Abiyoyo is a favorite story in our house. So very sad, I knew he was 94 but part of me still thought I might have a chance to take my kids to see him someday.
