What Did He Say?

The Los Angeles Times has an article about a campaign to get Pete Seeger, now a vibrant 92 years old, back on the Billboard charts.  (Hat tip An Overgrown Path.)  Toward the end I stumbled onto
Arlo Guthrie, at a tour stop in Oklahoma City, Okla., last week on his way to a centennial concert salute to his father, said he had recently invited Seeger, with whom he toured on and off for three decades, to join him for a show, but Seeger declined. 
“Pete said, ‘Arlo, I can’t play as well as I used to play, and I can’t sing as well as I used to sing,’” Guthrie told the audience. “I said, ‘Pete, have you taken a look at your audience lately? They can’t hear as well as they used to hear!’”
