    Thanks for everything, Pete. I saw him play alongside Clearwater in 1979 and 1980.

    I was running up the Hudson to Rensselaer in those days on the old T-1 tanker PROVIDENCE GETTY. It was always a big thrill to see CLEARWATER under sail in the river.

    He will be missed, but loved and remembered. Thanks, Christina!

    What a Beautifull Spirit. And what a Beautifull post from you. His songs reach out all over the World and connect souls as the sea. Ohoy captain Pete

    P.S. wasn´t more than a famous name for us, whose music initiation began with Hendrix. What a sad cause, to learn more about a dignified life.

    To ev’ry sailor comes time to drop anchor
    Haul in the sails and make the lines fast.
    You deep water dreamer, your journey is over
    You’re safe in the harbor at last.

    Thanks to Pete Seeger, a nation’s consciousness was awakened to the pollution of one of the world’s greatest waterways. This would be a sadder world if he had not been in it.
