“I lost a great friend and a great hero last night,” Bruce Springsteen said yesterday night, onstage at the Bellville Velodrome in South Africa. “Pete back home was a very courageous freedom fighter. This is a song he adopted and helped popularize… Once you heard this song, you were prepared to march into hell’s fire.”

Then he sang “We Shall Overcome.”
