Remembering Peter Fonda

August 20, 2019

After the great concert of John Fogerty last Thursday, discussion included an upcoming show at the same Radio City venue, regarding the film, “Easy Rider.”

How very sad that the presentation will now not have Peter Fonda, who co-wrote, produced and  starred, as he died a day later, at the age of 79.

If you know film acting, as you call the roll of the best, both male and female, it does not take long to call Peter’s father, Henry or his sister, Jane.

No matter your politics, surely all three participated, something Peter Fonda long and in his last known interview, emphasized.

Peter stood out and showed  his “acting chops,” in “Ulee’s Gold” in 1997, and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Peter  was always enjoyable and eloquent, when I heard him interviewed.

So much good and bad, fifty years in the “rear view,” now a big name and contributor, who still did not find “America,” hopefully will find the peace and equality, that a life lived well can bring.

Mr. Fonda certainly lived life well, participated, created and contributed. I say Henry and even your mom, Frances Seymour, will be more open and revealing now.

Don’t all of us, (MORE than) one time or another?!!
