The deaths of most people in Show Business don’t usually get to me. Hell death doesn’t usually make me too emotional until it’s somebody REAL close. Call me jaded or whatever. After so many people in my life have died, I’ve come to view it as the same as birth. Just one of the three parts of living: birth, life, & death, in which birth and death are interchangeable and life is what you make it.

John Prine tho. His first album came out in 1970 or so. I’ve felt all along as though I’ve known him- having friends in Nashville, I’ve gotten to hear stories lately- recently, of his hanging out in town, of his being right in there as an active and socially engaging and totally accessible member of the local music scene and their community.

John Prine has some special stuff going on without a doubt. Yet remained humble and acted as if even he wasn’t 100% sure where his words came from or how he even managed to get them all together to form songs. I’ve been listening to his songs, to interviews, and reading articles about him. Fortunately I got to see him perform definitely on 2 occasions, decades apart- and I FEEL like I saw him a third time in there somewhere between the 2. Although maybe it’s just because he’s always been in my head? Been a significant part of my life’s music? The most recent time I saw him perform was just 2 years ago. Maybe 1/3 or more of his performance was songs from that first record! They still had the exact same impact as they did when I first heard them, when I was 16. I laughed, I cried, my heart soared! I rejoiced in wonder at how a set of songs could have that kind of lasting impact. That touches you the same after all these years, after hearing them hundreds and hundreds of times.

No other musician’s work does that to me- with the possible exception of Jackson Browne whose first few records came straight at me in a more deeply personal way. John Prine’s songs are far more accessible to everybody because his folksy way of writing is so naturally.... all inclusive? Straightforward? Down-home-y? The magic of John Prine’s songwriting is that his words cut across all barriers of time and aging and place. They are written in such a way that your great grandmother can relate to them as easily as your 14 year old son would. Some songwriters write from within; their songs, as a result, can only be felt by those who’ve experienced similar things. John Prine’s songs come to us, through him, from the entire universe, seemingly from all human existence.

I feel like I’ve lost a brother. We have lost an American Treasure. This ARTICLE is great and seems so typical of the guy I thought I knew all these years, all these DECADES, all my life.

John Prine: turns out he is exactly the guy you always wanted to believe he was.
Sweet.
Humble.
Loving.
An accidental genius.
I hope he Rests In Peace, where ever he is now.

Turns out the last recording of John Prine wasn’t too long ago. An old cult soul singer named Swamp Dogg- who I gotta admit never having heard of- covered Sam Stone back in the 70s. He and John Prine became friends, and apparently seemed to have reconnected in recent years. John Prine made a guest appearance on this pretty recent record as the two performers sing a duet, in the eerily prescient Let Me Go Round Again.

John Prine sings a song from his own last record- live:
The Lonesome Friends Of Science. He had a life-long gift. He never lost it.
An amazing wordsmith, with musical accompaniment.



Cheers, y’all safe safe and well, OK, please?

It’s not music unless grinders and plug welds are music to you ears.

Have to actually go to www.youtube.com and search for song. Copy url(www.youtube.com) and select media, youtube video and paste the url in middle. I had same problem and figured it out. The key was going to website instead of just google search.
