Pete Seeger Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Bob Dylan’s Debut

Bob Dylan

Yesterday (or today if you’re in the US) was the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s self titled debut album. To celebrate the momentous occasion Dylan’s early mentor, 92 year old folk legend Pete Seeger, has released the video to his version of “Forever Young”. The song originally appeared on the recent Amnesty International Bob Dylan tribute album Chimes of Freedom and features the Rivertown Kids children’s choir. Check it out here:

Coinciding with the release of the video is a grassroots campaign to get Pete Seeger back into the Top 100 chart which would make him the oldest person ever to do so. Info on the campaign, named Forever Pete, can be found on their website foreverpete.com or on Twitter and Facebook with proceeds from the song going to Amnesty International.
