Where Have All the Flowers Gone? RIP Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger has died, aged ninety four. Not bad going. I daresay there are still people in the States who think he was a dreadful old commie. I prefer to think of him as a singer songwriter. I just heard Chris Evans say that he thought Where Have All the Flowers Gone? was written by Bob Dylan. Proof of Seeger's great influence, I'd say. My favourite version of any of his songs is probably Turn, Turn, Turn by The Byrds.
