O/T John Prine Folksinger Dead from Covid-19

If you're not much of a folkie you might not remember him. His first album was released in 1971. Some of his more famous songs are "Illegal Smile" and "Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore". He was still active in the music scene and did some stuff with Iris DeMent. Iris did "Our Town" song featured on the final episode of TV show "Northern Exposure".

My favorite John Prine song is "Hello In There" about being nice to old people. I enjoy this video someone made.

Sorry to go so far O/T from Corvairs but this is about the only group I frequent .

I like his music as well - I seem to listen to a lot of Steve Goodman (the singer, not the Corvair Guru), from time to time, and there are quite a few collaborations between the two.

Thanks for posting. His music has meant a lot to me for many years. More then I think I realized. Spent two long nights in the driveway listening to his music since I heard the news.

Sad news. One of my favorites of his was "Dear Abby".

I forgot about Sam Stone "There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes..."

I referenced "Dear Abby" here when The Californian was posting. Someone had said the post belonged in an Ann Landers column and the song came to mind.

Truely a legend. I was lucky enough to see him live a few years back. Kris Kristofferson opened for him. Great show! RIP John...

Dated a girl once who loved his music, guess I never gave him a fair shake. But reminded me of Jim Croce and Harry Chapin, two who went way too soon.

Back in the 70s at the University of Illinois, John Prine, Bonnie Kokack and Steve Goodman were some of my favorites and sometimes held concerts together. Saw John Prine in concert there many times...always a good time. He had an unusual voice, but some great stories. I can still sing lyrics to some of his songs.

I attended two of his concerts over the years. He was the favorite songwriter of many famous songwriters, including Bob Dylan, Chris Kristofferson and Bonnie Riatt. Jim, Harry, Steve Goodman, Warren Zevon and Townes Van Zandt were probably
standing line to greet him as he entered the Pearly Gates.
