RIP John Prine

Recommended Posts

One of my all time favorites. Mentioned on the Joe Diffie thread that he's beaten cancer twice, not sure how much fight he has left for this.

Boy, that's tough news.    He had his left lung removed in2013, so this is going to be a tough battle for him.    Fingers crossed....

Always knew his name, but somehow I don't seem to know a single song.

Fiona Prine says he he pneumonia in both lungs (see below). When I saw your post I thought he was not going to make it.
Now I am more hopeful that he will recover.

Yeah, he had part of his left lung removed two years ago.   Can't imagine how much function it has left, but better than none at all.

 

Fingers crossed...

John Prine is one of those brilliant poets and guitarists, on the fringe of "pop star" status. I have been loving his music since the seventies. 

 

He is on my top of the pops list with J.J. Cale, Leon Russell, The Band (two original members are alive), and a few others. 

 

I am not ready to let go of him yet. 🙏
