It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Sad news indeed!

There's was a true iconic sound of the 60's.

Love "If I Had A Hammer"

Doubly sad because Mary had beaten the "big C" but she was left so weakened by the treatment and then fell prey to another illness.

R.I.P. Mary

I can remember playing my parents Peter Paul and Mary LP's back in the 60's( they had them all) :D Mom and dad got to see them at Indiana State University back around 1968 I think. They still are very cool 8)

This is what they were about :D

Just paying my respects.

And acknowledging that it is so sad. :cry:

She contributed so much to music and song of the 60's.

Listening to them gave me my first lessons in harmony.
Falling in love is like learning to play the guitar; first you learn to follow the rules, then you learn to play with your heart.
