    Pete Seeger, at a good age of 94 my hero of the 1950s has died. I found his songs so inspiring as he used his music to contest the vested interests of the day, the words meaningful and the tune excellent a great pity that there were not more as the vested interests still reign. Pete, I still have your EPs and LPs and treasure your music and the message it carries may you rest in peace.

    ...More than a mere man, he was a legend. Hugely inspirational and totally devoted....the world is a poorer place without him.
