Pete was the epitome of a gentleman, and his integrity and compassion have no equals. Since I learned of his death, I've tried to think of who might fill his shoes, and I've come up empty. RIP, Pete.

I heard Pete in person in the early 60's when he was still very vigorous. He played his 12-string with the triangular soundhole, and "Bells of Rhymney" knocked us out of our seats.

So sorry to see that Pete has left us, but what a life he lived.

I first saw Pete in the early sixties at Delta Collegiate in Hamilton, Ontario.  He put on a great show.  That was the first time I heard Abiyoyo, a tale I ofte played for my kids when they were little.
The last time I saw Pete was at Hugh's Room in Toronto.  At 89, he climbed to the stage by himself and stood up for every song.  His voice and banjo/guitar chops showed his age, but his song leading skills had not deteriorated at all.  The audience included Ken Whiteley, Sylvia Tyson and Gord Lightfoot.

My wife and I have no interest in the televised part, either--and she's a professional musician.

RIP Pete Seeger

The type of music that I listen to is always awarded at a pre-show ceremony.  I have little interest in hearing rap, pop or new country.  I did watch Paul and Ringo on Youtube, but these are the Grammy winners I would have liked to see/hear:

Best american roots song: “Love Has Come For You,” Edie Brickell and Steve Martin

Best americana album: “Old Yellow Moon,” Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell

Best bluegrass album: “The Streets Of Baltimore,” Del McCoury Band

Best blues album: “Get Up!,” Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite

Best folk album: “My Favorite Picture Of You,” Guy Clark

Best regional roots music album: “Dockside Sessions,” Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience

Best improvised jazz solo: “Orbits,” Wayne Shorter

Best jazz vocal album: “Liquid Spirit,” Gregory Porter

Did anyone watch the  Grammys last night?

Actually John you are correct. It was the style to show the ankle a bit however my bell bottoms are showing calf! :)

If I remember correctly, ANY pair of pants and jeans was supposed to show some ankle. A friend is having a 65th birthday party next month; he wants guests to dress the way they did in the '60s.  The trouble is, I don't dress all that differently: jeans, button-down collar shirt, vest.  He did tell my wife not to come braless, though (seriously).
