      There's a new set of some of his remastered demos coming out - "Keyhole Street".  I downloaded a sampler today. He was such a great songwriter and vocalist, even at age 19.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

          These are old demos of Pete's that were saved by his brother, John and others.  Dan Matovina has been working on them for the last year or so. I'm so glad the Pledge Music project worked out.

          If you order the CD set, you'll get the sampler pack right away. The CDs will come in a month or so.

          I bought a ticket for the concert in Swansea, Wales, but it looks like I'm not going to be able to go.  They're having some special events on Pete's birthday in April, unveiling a plaque at the Swansea train station and a memorial at Morriston Cemetery where his ashes are buried.  It should be a great event.
