They just do not make them like that these days. I can remember watching his Rainbow Quest show on TV back in the 60's.

while I am not a fan of his politics, I do appreciate his idealism, and moreover, a lot of his songs and covers.

I have a live Guantanamera he did later in life where he translates as he goes, its one of my very fave songs of all time, this particular version.

I also very much enjoy that version of Guantanamera. I do like his politics too, though. I didn't think that man could die. I'm glad he had a long and active life

I only saw him play live once. It was just a little more than five years ago, and it was really special. That's Pete in the middle, with his grandson Tao on the left and some skinny guy from NJ on the right.
