2 years agoEvery year Pete Seeger figured out how much money he would need to support his family for the coming year and he gave that dollar figure to Harold Leventhal, his manager, and asked him to book concerts that would earn him that much money. Pete filled up the rest of his year playing for free at benefits, fundraisers, schools, union halls, rallies and every other kind of movement gathering and venue he could play and he did that for as long as he could. That’s the kind of guy he was and that’s what side HE was on. A real stand-up guy who wouldn’t name names, and was ready to go to prison for it. He was convicted of contempt of Congress for his refusal, but it was reversed on appeal. One of the best people ever and one of my heroes.
