How to honor Woody on what would have been his 100 year Birthday would be for the World to fulfill what he spent his life singing about. This world is our world, its not the Oil Companies. Arlo says they sing this land in China, just different direction.

1913 Massacre This is how the rich used to treat unions in our country, and if people don't watch out, they will again.

We ALL slowly die when we stop pushing against restriction to freedom.
When we yield...give in...we're dead weight to others fighting oppression.
Each of us has an obligation to hold strong in our own community or circle.
The current of conformity, regimentation control and coop mentality is strong.

Woody took it to the road...the voice of the voiceless
an example for all of us to NOT give in to complacency.

Woody Guthrie was (and still is) a national treasure almost without equal. I have everything he ever recorded.

As much as I treasure him and his music, why have we not elevated our current troubadours to Woody's stature? Why do so many still labor in virtually total obscurity? Why isn't Jim Page a household name? Why isn't _________________ a household name? Fill in the blank. We have dozens of modern day Woody Guthries all over the land. Why are we spending all our time and money on commercially successful sellouts?

The woodman moved a generation with Peter, Paul & Mary, The Kingston Trio.
The folk singers of OUR time who gave us hope. We listened to their stories.
Not knowing that Bob Dylan would soon become the master of Folk music.

Woodies seeds sprouted more talent in the form of Arlo. Who rocked us in a big air liner and let us spend many hours in Alice's Restaurant.
Great Videos Micheal especially the finale....Where is Arlo?

Patrica, Arlo was out on the road on a tour, forget where, when this Concert in LA was held. He was at the one in Woody's Home Town of Oklahoma when this 100th Birthday National Tour started a month or so back.

Ya Norm, we have Woody's and such all over the Country. Jim Page should be a household name.

Nice post Michael..I told you i was going, and i did!. I got to see Arlo in Tacoma last Saturday :-p

Woody, Joan, Joni, Bob Dylan and the rest will always be in our hearts, but let's not forget Pete Seeger, who is still an activist, and will not stop till his last breath has left his body...
God how i wish i could have seen the big concert though!
And my Jackson :-)

Ellen, You saw Arlo on the day his Dear Friend and Guru Ma Ja left her body to watch over Mankind from above. I just read a mind blowing story about how her life effected Arlo. Will be posting it here, as soon as we figure out how to post ''Hot Link'' Articles on OEN.

(I made a lot of friends playing 3-cushion at Elks Club in Tacoma, while wiring a Boeing Job, out of IBEW #76. They would get a kick out me right now, playing 3-cushion in Belgium, where I just met Raymond Cuelamans, 29 time World Champion at 3-c.)
