I never catched him live, but his 2010 album in person & on stage is simply fabulous.

Painful. I thought he was pulling through.

Tonight a new nightclub opens called The Tree of Forgiveness: [www.youtube.com]

I was really hoping Mr. Prine would hang in there. I'm at a loss for words. His music has meant as much to me over the years as anybody's. Love you, John.

Been a devotee since 73. Had been harbouring a hope he'd pull through. Saw him many times live - always a pleasure and a life-affirming experience. Sitting with tickets for a twice rescheduled show in Edinburgh. Will raise a glass to John tonight and, later, on the night of the rescheduled show.

Had tickets to see him last year, but he postponed until February.
He postponed again. New date was in August.
It wasn’t meant to be.

Rest easy John.

“When I get to heaven, I'm gonna shake God's hand
Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand
Then I'm gonna get a guitar and start a rock-n-roll band
Check into a swell hotel; ain't the afterlife grand?”

To be honest, I'm not familiar with his music. I saw him open for Bonnie Raitt in the early 90s. Don't remember a lot. It doesn't matter. I see how his death has upset many of my friends. RIP.

NPR had an online listening party today for the 50th anniversary of John Prine’s debut album. Following the album, there was a discussion with John’s wife, Bonnie Raitt, and Jim Rooney (John’s producer).
