At Home With John Mellencamp "For The Children"
When word of Pete Seeger's death reached John, he issued a statement where he commented, "Pete Seeger always tried to make the world a better place through his music and activism. His lifelong commitment to the cause of peace and to addressing the plight of the downtrodden has been an inspiration to all those who have championed society's victims and have done what they could to combat injustice. His music and commitment was more powerful than a thousand armies. We are fortunate that he lit the way for so long."
Later, he told the New York Times, " Probably my most inspirational moment with Pete was playing at his 90th birthday concert, at Madison Square Garden. I asked him, ‘What do you think of this?’ He said, ‘It’s awfully nice. But you know, if you want to make a difference, you’ve got to keep things small. Keep it small, John. These big things are fine occasionally, but they make a big noise and then people forget them.’ And I think he was right. Farm Aid is an example: it’s small, but we keep plugging away.”
At the 90th birthday celebration for Pete, John covered Pete's "If I Had A Hammer" and performed his own Seeger inspired "A Ride Back Home." John and Pete teamed up again at the 2013 Farm Aid Concert in Saratoga Springs NY. Pete joined John, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Dave Matthews to sing "This Land Is Your Land" and "If I Had A Hammer." After the jump you can watch all of those performances. Read More
