RIP Pete Seeger, Lost Grammy To Stephen Colbert The Night Before He Died

Posted on January 28th, 2014 at 7:53 am


1960s folk legend Pete Seeger passed away Monday night at age 94.

But he was working up until the end.  In fact, he was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Spoken Word" recording the night before he died.

But he lost to cable TV host Stephen Colbert who beat out Seeger's The Storm King.

Seeger was best known for co-writing classics like  "If I Had a Hammer," ''Turn, Turn, Turn," ''Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine."

He passed away Monday night after being hospitalized for nearly a week.

RIP to a music -- and truly American -- legend.
