Folk Legend Pete Seeger Dies at 94

The legendary Pete Seeger, who inspired generations of folk and protest singers, has died at the age of 94.

He has one of my favourite music quotes.  When asked why he used music to protest what he saw as injustices, he said “Because you can sing something you can’t otherwise say.”

Billboard has his full story.
