I’m not qualified to write this; Tom Morwood is the guy who should be eulogizing John Prine. Many of us are crushed. As much as Neil Peart hurt early in the year, so John Prine pains us now.
John Prine, age 73, has succumbed to Covid-19, the latest in a list of artists who did not survive the pandemic. When this is all over the view will be very different.
When you have earned the praise of Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson and Tom Morwood, you are the real deal. Prine was that and more.
Rest in peace.
