Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger died yesterday at 94. I’ve always been a friend of the Seeger family since the ’80s, when I met Peggy and Ewan MacColl in England. This is the last postcard I got from Pete when he turned 90 and I interviewed him for Il Manifesto newspaper (the pdf interview, in Italian, on this website in the section ‘articoli’, dated 2009). There is no need to say anything about Pete, such a giant he was. I’ve written a message to Peggy.

Fare thee well, Pete, may God bless you!
