    Truly truly a defining icon for the 60’s. Thanks for everything, Pete.

    Still young at 90 and still fighting the good battle.

  • Bob OBrien

    I felt so privileged to have been at MSG that night to bear witness to one of our greatest national treasures.
    I only hope I can go to his 100th birthday bash!

    I shut it off halfway into the 3rd act’s rewrite of “Mr. President.” When they started babbling about dumbing down of America and sending him (Bush) back to Texas. Why the hate? Move on. Yes you can. I didn’t vote for Obama, but think he’s doing a good job so far. I don’t think that group’s performance (Bush-bashing) was in the spirit of the event. They should have sung the original.

    Thank you PBS for letting me view this wonderful performance and watch Pete Seeger perform again. Seeing his grandson perform with him and kiss him ‘Happy Birthday’ was wonderful. It was a joy to watch Joan Baez as well. Thanks again PBS.
