RIP John Prine

Recommended Posts

John had a great career and many fans. He was respected in every genre, and by all writers. He made it past three score plus 10. He did what he loved for a living, so he never worked a day in his life. 

I'll not mourn his death, I'll celebrate his life.

sad day for music, but it would seem to attribute this to Covid19 might not be quite true,  didn't he become ill well before any of this started?

Thanks Jax.  Great song & video complements it well.  I think he was nominated for a Grammy last year for this album.  Tree of Forgiveness.   He even forgives his critics,  while finding a word that rhymes with 'critic'  !

He probably wrote it but didn't get around to recording it. Love Angel From Montgomery. I've seen Bonnie do it both times I saw her.

I am an old woman

Named after my mother

Just give me something I can hold onto

To believe in this living is just a hard way to go. 

Written 50 years ago and never truer than now. I saw Bonnie do Angel from Montgomery with James Taylor at Fenway Park several years ago. It was so good I nearly cried. When I listened to LaBomba's post I did. I have that recording on a Bonnie Raitt Collection double CD somewhere and it brought back fond memories of a great song performed by two great artists that were also great friends. I saw Bonnie interviewed by Anderson Cooper last night and she gave a great tribute to John. I'll be adding Angel from Montgomery back to my solo acoustic set list and after last week I vowed to learn the great Bill Whithers songs. We could all use somebody to lean on these days.
