Springsteen's Homage to Pete Seeger
By Tom Moon

World Cafe, April 25, 2006 - On the new collection We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, Bruce Springsteen honors the folk music tradition that has inspired many of his own compositions over the years. All the tracks on the new album are standards closely associated with folk icon Pete Seeger.

Springsteen assembled large ensemble of acoustic musicians to flavor the proceedings with everything from accordion to tuba. Rock critic Tom Moon talks with host David Dye about why he reacted so strongly and positively towards this latest offering by The Boss.

NYT Writer Corrects Record: Pete Seeger 'Only' 40 Years Late in Denouncing Stalin
By P.J. Gladnick
2007-09-02

The New York Times has now corrected [1] a "smear" about Pete Seeger being 50 years too late in denouncing Stalin. Thanks to the intrepid research of Times reporter Daniel J. Wakin, the record has now been set straight. Pete Seeger was only about 40 years too late in criticizing Stalin.

"Seeger was antiwar during the period of the Nazi-Soviet Pact; pro-war after the Soviet Union was the ally of the United States; and anti-war during the years of the Cold War and Vietnam. To Nichols -a rather dense left-winger -it is good form to acknowledge that perhaps 'Stalin was a bad guy,' and then simply get over it, and move on to campaign for very American socialist causes." --Ronald Radosh (former communist)

Crap.
He’s just a rock musician; if you don’t like what he says, turn the volume down.

As long as he’s singing, he’s almost as good as Bob Seger...

I feel you are wrong to attack Springsteen when he is approaching the heights of his artistic and musical life. He now knows at least a dozen guitar chords and several of his sensitive lyrics now feature lines that scan as if they were like poetry almost. "Born in the USA:" deathless prose from this working class genius!

As far as Seeger goes, his singing has brought joy to many misunderstood people, including Joe Stalin and many American Communists. What are the lives of the 50-60 million non-and less-than-enthusiastic communists slaughtered by the Soviets? I am sure you can see that it is but a small price to pay for bringing the communist utopian message to the unwashed.

I partially grew up listening to the guy, I new he was a lefty because he hated Reagan back then, but he kept a lid on it for the most part, but when he went full on moonbat I microwaved all my CDs from him and would never put a nickel in his pocket again.

He disgusts me. There is only so much you can handle sometimes.

There are a LOT of dopes, even on the right, who play Springsteen's "Born in the USA" on the 4th of July and other patriotic occasions. They actually think it's a pro-American song.

“The Boss” loudly campaigned for “change” for John Kerry in 2004, then recently went whole hog for Obama, claiming that Bush “destroyed lives” and lied to start a war, etc. It was so gratifying to have such a Great American for the Superbowl halftime celebration tonight. /not

Bruce is to 70’s 80’s rock fans what the Dixie Chicks are to country music fans.

They alienate half their customer base every time they condescend to impart some of their socio-economic-political wisdom on the world.

That said, if you saw the Boss on the Superbowl half time show it was like watching your great grandfather trying to get down in ghetto town.

He looked and sounded like he was ready to have a stroke right there in the stadium.
But fortunately, for the medical team, he was able to finish the set.

He wouldn't have needed to hear it from Pete. It's all in the public record.

Before rock music became hyper-politicized, Nugent did “shut up and play”. Only after the entire industry allowed itself to become a megaphone for the political left did Nugent start speaking out and standing up.

There is no comparison.

Well out of the last 3 Super bowl games I have to say that Springstien out did the Stones, Tom Petty and for God’s sake that mess that Janet Jackson created a few years back. At 59, Springstien did good...Because he performed and did not preach his politics for once.

Agreeance. "Amazing" is the new, favorite buzzword of like, sorority girls. When I hear someone use it in a sentence, I automatically discount their opinion!

As to Springsteen .. he was just as crappy as ever. If he'd actually try opening his mouth when he sings, he might not sound like some Indian .. oops .. Native American, doing some kind of tribal grunting. And the beginning where he laid on the ground holding the mike stand in the air between his legs .. was he doing some kind of free ad for Vagra?!

Hey Bruce: The 80's called .. they DON'T want their music back!

Really? I thought he was pathetic. He wasn’t in good enough physical shape to sing his songs without becoming so winded that he had to skip phrases.

Additionally, he was using every trick in the book to hide the fact that he’s losing his voice and can’t hit the high hard ones any more.

In case you aren't aware, people with Seeger's 'no harm in that', 'misguided politics' have just taken control of the White House.

Give me the Beatles, U2, or Paul McCartney ANY day!

Speaking of misguided politics...

The Lost John Lennon Interview
"Power to the People"

TA (interviewer): In a way you were even thinking about politics when you seemed to be knocking revolution?

JL (Lennon): Ah, sure, 'Revolution' . There were two versions of that song but the underground left only picked up on the one that said 'count me out'. The original version which ends up on the LP said 'count me in' too; I put in both because I wasn't sure. There was a third version that was just abstract, musique concrete, kind of loops and that, people screaming. I thought I was painting in sound a picture of revolution--but I made a mistake, you know. The mistake was that it was anti-revolution.

On the version released as a single I said 'when you talk about destruction you can count me out'. I didn't want to get killed. I didn't really know that much about the Maoists, but I just knew that they seemed to be so few and yet they painted themselves green and stood in front of the police waiting to get picked off. I just thought it was unsubtle, you know. I thought the original Communist revolutionaries coordinated themselves a bit better and didn't go around shouting about it. That was how I felt--I was really asking a question. As someone from the working class I was always interested in Russia and China and everything that related to the working class, even though I was playing the capitalist game.

“Yeah, Bruce isn’t exactly a great musicians from what I’ve heard.”

Can’t really say as I remember watching the Woodstock 2 thing in 94 and being shocked that Bob Dylan could not play with his band. They were struggling to try and keep him coherent. It was really bizarre.

But Dylan is a great songwriter regardless.

Now Bruce I can’t really say. He has an old and loyal following in NJ and at one time back in his youth I heard he won a guitarist of the year award for the state. Don’t know if that’s true but I remember hearing it.

Now I don’t love his political perspective as it’s full of holes but I think he has been a voice of the blue collar guy in NJ and that has carried him far. His love of Seeger the communists I could do without as well.

But hey, 10th Avenue Freezeout was great last night and Clarence sounded super.

I used to be a big Springsteen fan. He could never hit the high hard ones. I liked him when his music was fun. Now it’s all depressing songs about the downtrodden that we should help. If I wanted to be depressed I’d talk to my family not pay money to go to a show or buy a CD.

I thought he did pretty good last night. Better as the set went on. I don’t care for his politics, but those weren’t on display last night. He is coming to town in April and I’m thinking about going. I wonder how political he will be in Oklahoma.

Munro, you are too hard on the old genius!

I saw him do a chord change that was breathtaking in its musical complexity and required him to move his fingers at least twice. I also found out that he is fatter than Johnny Cash, since he didn't quite fit in to the costume he obviously picked up at the Cash Estate Yard Sale.

The knee-slide? Slinging the guitar around his neck? Wow! Or at least Sham-Wow!
