A Legacy of American Music: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)

This post is long overdue.  Pete Seeger was a titan of American music.  There are simply no words that can describe just how vital this man was to Folk Music specifically, but to American music at large.  Have you heard The Birds' "Turn, Turn, Turn"?  How about "If I Had a Hammer"?  Yep, both his.  "Where Have All the Flowers Gone"?  Yes, he wrote that too.  That's not just a freaking leave-you-dead-in-your-tracks, oh-my-gosh-that-was-HIM resume, its a legacy of American Music.

If I had a hammer, I'd hammer like Pete.
