Bruce Springsteen called him "the father of American folk music." Pete Seeger, the singer/songwriter/activist - died Monday at the age of 94. Seeger popularized "This Land Is Your Land" and "We Shall Overcome" and wrote "If I Had a Hammer" and "Turn, Turn, Turn"...but never liked the term folk music. Seeger, dropped out of Harvard University in 1938 to ride a bicycle across the country. His music influenced Springsteen, Joan Baez, Dave Matthews, Rufus Wainwright, John Mellencamp and Arlo Guthrie.
