That is sad.  I hate to say it, but I thought he had already passed.  My favorite Pete Seeger quote: "I spent half my life tuning my twelve string guitar and the other half playing it out of tune."

A die hard communist to the end (in the traditional sense, not the politburo) who was decidedly an anti-marxist.  A contradiction in thinking or just a complex man?  I believe he lived a glorious life, spreading the message of love and peace wherever he went.  That message will live on through his songs.
