“Woody, the dust bowl refugee, was the group’s repository of proletarian wisdom, the ultimate arbiter of taste. He was impossibly arrogant, affecting a general air of impatience with the other Almanac Singers’ hopelessly urban, middlye-class sensibilities, rarely raising his voice but maintaining his authority with grunts, shrugs, and paralytic stares. He had the feeling of a loaded gun about him.”
- Joe Klein in Woody Guthrie: A Life
