Billy Bragg and Tom Morello have paid tribute to Pete Seeger, the legendary folk singer who died this week at the age of 94. Both of the politically minded musicians, along with many others, have cited Seeger as a major influence and inspiration in the past.

After the news of his passing became public, Bragg tweeted:

"Peter Seeger towered over the folk scene like a mighty redwood for 75 years. He travelled with Woody Guthrie in the 1940s, stood up to Joe McCarthy in the 50s, marched with Dr Martin Luther King in the 60s. His songs will be sung wherever people struggle for their rights. We shall overcome.

Morello, meanwhile, tweeted a link to Seeger's "uncompromising bada** testimony before The House of Un-American Activities Committee.

Seeger, who was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, died in a New York hospital after a short illness, his grandson Kitama Cahill-Jackson confirmed overnight.
