    A great trio silenced.

    From all the generations of kids and adults you entertained, thank you.

    I distinctly remember seeing this trio live on TV one time when I was younger.

    I think that must have been during my Julie Andrews kick. I think there was some concert both were in.

    I grew up with PPM's music in the house, so this is really a sad day for me... so many great songs, so many memories. :(

    Puff the Magic Dragon was an important song when I was a little kid. When I finally got the message of the song, it was a formative moment, it was so sad.

    Aw - so sad! I love PP&M - I saw them in concert some time after they reunited...early 1980s, I think it was. It was a magical night.

    "Leaving on a Jet Plane" is one of my all-time favorite songs. "Already I'm so lonesome I could cry..."
