    Here's the NY Times obit

    This one leaves me sad. What a tremendous human being and a great performer who just brought such a zest to his shows. I've been watching clips of him on Youtube. I just found him a compelling figure who brought a lot to this world.

    Man, he was one of those I thought might never die. We need him around.

I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this.”

    Give my regards to Woody, Pete.

    A great man who delivered his message with quiet strength and authenticity. He was one of my wife's biggest heroes.

    A true American icon. His catalog is breathtaking and the artists he's worked with is a who's who of American music. They don't make guys like this very often. I'll miss him but his music lives on.

    I was wondering today whether there is anyone left who played with Woody Guthrie as a contemporary. Was Seeger the last?

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    That's what I was thinking, but I think Guthrie was pretty sick when Elliott would have been the right age.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    There are photos of Jack and Woody on his web site, along with some good audio clips of them together.

    Here's a piece a musician I got to know through his two sisters; a tribute he wrote to Pete Seeger and recounting the first time he performed with him. It's a nice piece.
