JOHN PRINE R.I.P. 1946 - 2020

John Prine, who for five decades wrote rich, plain-spoken songs that chronicled the struggles and stories of everyday working people and changed the face of modern American roots music, died Tuesday April 7 at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was 73. The cause was complications related to Covid-19, his family confirmed to Rolling Stone.

Prine, who left behind an extraordinary body of folk-country classics, was hospitalized last month after the sudden onset of Covid-19 symptoms, and was placed in intensive care for 13 days. Prine’s wife and manager, Fiona, announced on March 17th that she had tested positive for the virus after they had returned from a European tour.

As a songwriter, Prine was admired by Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, and others, known for his ability to mine seemingly ordinary experiences - he wrote many of his classics as a mailman in Maywood, Illinois - for revelatory songs that covered the full spectrum of the human experience. There’s “Hello in There,” about the devastating loneliness of an elderly couple; “Sam Stone,” a portrait of a drug-addicted Vietnam soldier suffering from PTSD; and “Paradise,” an ode to his parents’ strip-mined hometown of Paradise, Kentucky, which became an environmental anthem. Prine tackled these subjects with empathy and humor, with an eye for “the in-between spaces,” the moments people don’t talk about, he told Rolling Stone in 2017. “Prine’s stuff is pure Proustian existentialism,” Dylan said in 2009. “Midwestern mind-trips to the nth degree.” - Rolling Stone

  2. Out of respect for the recently deceased, could the usual idiots please refrain from polluting this space with their inane and insane comments?

  3. Who the hell is this bozo

  4. My idol Kim Jong Un is dead

    By Billy on Apr 22, 2020

  5. I have no respect for anyone but my pet pig, I dont even respect myself. I like to receive golden showers and be defecated on my face by big black coons

    By Billy on Apr 22, 2020

  6. I would like to go through what Jesus Christ went through. I would love to be whipped spat upon and crucified

    By Billy on Apr 22, 2020

  7. I wish Harmon Mark and myself can have a jackoff contest. Then we give each other handjobs and blowjobs and butt fucking

    By Billy on Apr 22, 2020

  8. Each one of these cretins mark harmon and billy are registered sx offender. I did a background check with a friend who works at FBI. We were able to narrow down their cell phone pings and IP address

  9. Now we playin hardball . Good job DD

  10. :-)

    By David Duke on Apr 22, 2020

  11. Apparently “David Duke” is unaware of libel laws. That doesn’t surprise me, considering…well, I don’t want to libel HIM so I’ll just say I’m not surprised.

    It might not even be the “actual” DD- IP addresses only would be the way to track DD down, and I’m just not that interested in making the effort.

    BTW- Libel: a written defamation

    By Mark on Apr 22, 2020

  12. Go away Mark , and take your many usernames with you .

    By T J on Apr 22, 2020

  13. Antichrist ‘ are you still with us ? I’m talking to the real deal ‘ not the many phony copycats here .

    By T J on Apr 22, 2020

  14. Johns penis was huge , a monster . I choked trying deep throat it in the early 80

    By Groupie Chick Traci on Apr 22, 2020

  15. Rumor has it John had a Big Un

    By U L E on Apr 22, 2020

  16. I was born in 1981 , so I missed those glorious groupie days unfortunately. I would have fit right in if I had been a young girl in the seventies. My parents were old hippies and when I was little they would drag me to concerts. I remember them taking me with them to see Tom Petty and the heartbreakers back in 1987.

    By Dee Dee Longley on Apr 22, 2020

  17. Prick size is very important. Based on the comments by the groupies here ‘ many rock stars had very big pricks . I happen to think girth is better than length, except during anal .that can hurt like hell , for that a long skinny prick is best .

    By Dee Dee Longley on Apr 22, 2020

  18. TJ- you should know by now that I’m not going anywhere. Also, I’m awesome enough that I only need-and use-one name. It’s fun watching someone else troll the trolls, though. It’s even funny watching someone else post under my name.

    By Mark on Apr 22, 2020

  19. This letter serves as notice to you and your company to immediately cease and desist all harassing activities against my client, David Duke. Your actions are unwanted and are embarrassing, annoying, aggressive and threatening. As a result of your harassment, my client has suffered substantial harm to his reputation and character.
    If you do not cease and desist the harassment, I will be forced to take appropriate legal action against you and will seek all available damages and remedies.

    By Kyle Bristow on Apr 22, 2020

  20. What is an sx offender?

    By Mark of the Beast on Apr 22, 2020

  21. Kyle- when will Duke stop harassing others?

  23. Some hope hey, Rod? Nice try though . . . . . Thanks Big O always could do with some more John Prine. There are scant really good quality recordings and I don’t know whether it was just me but his label Oh Boy seemed to make sure there weren’t many actual bootlegs, or ROIOs rather, around very much. Or certainly for very long. Hope this one is an exception. Few sites been posting some nice stuff lately
    Thanks its appreciated
    He will be sorely missed
    When we are losing people of this calibre I am amazed at the pro-Trump anti lock down conspiracy hoax virus theorists and corvid-19 deniers refusing to adhere to lock down. There are people dying in your country and globally folks and so far the greatest number is in America!
    Sad days
    Stay safe everybody
    :(

    By swappers on Apr 22, 2020

  24. So Hebrew mark thinks it’s amusing to see all the phony copycat trolls using other people’s names here . Of course it’s amusing to him because he’s responsible for most of it , signing off as Antichrist ‘ Derrick, billy , Harmon as well as yours truly. Are you having fun creating chaos Mark ?

    By HHH on Apr 22, 2020

  25. John Prine was hung like a horse . My mouth was so stretched from giving him head that it was hard to close it afterwards. Tremendous girth .

    By Pam des Barris on Apr 22, 2020

  26. I never knew that Prine was such a groupie magnet. He never seemed the type to run in those circles. He certainly wasn’t Gene Simmons.

    By CJ on Apr 22, 2020

  27. Big O - have contacted you but wonder if anyone else was having trouble with downloading this gem? I can’t stream it, it just stutters to heck and the download is worse and won’t really play but just flutters? ?
    Anyone?
    Anyone sensible that is?

    Is there anybody there?
    ;)

    By swappers on Apr 22, 2020

  28. HHH- I’m having fun posting ONLY as myself. I have better things to do than post over and over as someone else, plus, I’m too smart and too decent to type the kinds of things you post and the trolls post.

    By Mark on Apr 22, 2020

  29. Great fuckin John Prine show here.sad hes no longer with us

    By THE ANTISOCIALCHRIST on Apr 22, 2020

  38. DIE ANTI you piece of crap you weren’t any good at eating out my ass, I just enjoyed farting in your ugly white boy face.

    By HHH's Fat Black Wife on Apr 22, 2020

  39. “The virus is government conspiricy” (sic), which government do you mean? Or are you saying that the American government is responsible for killing thousands of people all over the world? I know it’s hard, but try having a think before you make yourself look stupid.

    By For Fuck's Sake!!! on Apr 22, 2020

  40. Well the usual douche bags showed up, couldn’t let a dead man Rest In Peace. You too will find your hate when you hit the dirt.

    By chotakeo on Apr 22, 2020

  50. Corrections:
    The speed does not seem to be right.

    By chotakeo on Apr 22, 2020

  51. Maybe I should have made myself clearer: playing the tracks is ok but downloading it, there is something wrong with the speed.

    By chotakeo on Apr 22, 2020

  52. Bob , you is a un American jew bastard for sayin shit like that Watch Casino and see what Joe Pesci got . Every dic sucker should get that

    By Derrick on Apr 22, 2020

  53. You now have far right religious fanatics and preachers wanting to reopen churches . To hell with the virus and medical science they say . God will protect you . Gold grief there are some dumb people in the world.

    By Tom on Apr 22, 2020

  54. The individual or individuals posting here using the name of my client, David Duke are imposters. Their actions are unwanted and are embarrassing, annoying, aggressive and threatening. As a result of their harassment, my client has suffered substantial harm to his reputation and character.
    If they do not cease and desist the harassment, I will be forced to take appropriate legal action against them and any other individuals involved and will seek all available damages and remedies, up to and including filing criminal charges.

    By Kyle Bristow on Apr 22, 2020

  55. Bob , you is makin me hot sayin shit like that . Watch The Smurf Movie and see what Papa Smurf got . Every inbred redneck should get that

    By Derrick on Apr 22, 2020

  56. David Duke is a weiner.

    By Kyle Blister on Apr 22, 2020

  57. Tryin to sound like Zeppelin here. Lame

    By Derrick on Apr 22, 2020

  58. Derrick - my all time favorite movie is Superfly. not that fucked up new one but the original from 1972. the soundtrack by the amazing Curtis Mayfield still stands as the greatest of all time in my opinion. you know Shaft was amazing, too and I have always worshiped Issac Hayes but my man Curtis really outshines him for Superfly. I love the pimp styles and I still have my Freddie hat and purple plush coat. when I throw on the old vinyl and dance to it lately I can’t to do it without my walker because I still get angina and sometimes I gotta pop a nitro tab under my tongue to finish my routine.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Apr 22, 2020

  59. Kyle- So what you’re (note the correct spelling!) saying is that Duke can dish it out but he can’t take it? He’s really letting his feelings get by strangers on the Internet? How precious.

    By Mark on Apr 23, 2020

  60. These files are all corrupted. Try playing one.

    By Jacksprat on Apr 23, 2020

  61. Didn’t John Prine have a song about how the internet has made everyone so much more intelligent?

    By Mr. Jones on Apr 23, 2020

  62. Saw this tour in Eugene, right after this show. Wonderful show, remains in my all-time greats after hundreds of shows since…he had a rare ability to connect with an audience…the band was smokin’! RIP to an American Legend.

    By Don on Apr 23, 2020

  63. John Prine was an example of what a great person can be: somebody who nurtures his natural gifts and makes the world a better place.

    Derrick, “David Duke”, Derrick, ANTICHRIST and I, on the other hand, are perfect examples of pathetic individuals without natural gifts who make the world a little big worse by polluting the internet with our stupidity.

    By U L E on Apr 23, 2020

  64. Obviously, that wasn’t me. If it was me, I would’ve said something stupid about John Prine having a big un, because I’m brain damaged.

    By U L E on Apr 23, 2020

  65. Thanks for the music, BIGO, but these files all seem to be corrupted. They sound fine when I click on them here, but like they were recorded in a fish tank when I download them.

Come on now. We ain’t stupid. What do you really believe? You can’t have it both ways. Im not sticking up for them but if you have no credibility what good are your posts?

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Apr 23, 2020

  85. Racism is for only the dull and ignorant. Appreciation of the arts is not at all possible by those so ignorant as to embrace racism, homophobia and misogyny. Your type is not welcome here. Go away Anti, Derrick, David Duke and HHH, and never return. You are not welcome here ever again. There are other cesspools for your kind to swim in.
