I was just talking about him last week with my FIL and he was wondering if old Pete was still alive.

It was a nice slide show though. I hadn't seen those 90th birthday party pictures before. And I knew he didn't cooperate with the commie witch hunt, but didn't realize he went to jail for a year over it.

edit: I see he appealed and won, and never actually served time.

Pete Seeger was a hero of mine. And the Weavers reunion on PBS is one of my all-time favorite specials.

Ah man, that's so sad. Mum just phoned me to tell me. We're all big fans of his.

What a tragic waste. He was such a talented actor.

Just read about that a few minutes ago. Kinda shocking. We were the same age, I thought he was 55-ish.

Suspected overdose, as he was found with a needle in his arm, per YahooNews.

He was the subject of a death hoax earlier this week they said.

Yeah, he was a very good actor. Addicts are the best liars.
