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

Thanks to jddpro for sharing the show at Dime.

Notes:

One of the best-sounding John Prine recodings I have, this show might be one of the most star-studded John Prine shows ever. Margo Price, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, My Morning Jacket’s Yim Yames and The Night Sweats’s Nathaniel Rateliff each guested on one song, and (ex) Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters even brought his back vocalists from indie band Lucius for the song “Hello in There”. You can find tons of reviews of this concert online, as well as fan-shot videos on YouTube. John Prine inspired and influenced a lot of today’s best songwriters and this show proves that. As someone puts, “John Prine might not be your favorite songwriter, but he probably is one of your favorite songwriters’ favorite songwriter.”

All guest artists featured on this show paid tribute to John when he passed away - Margo Price and Nathaniel Rateliff performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk John Prine Tribute Concert, Jim James posted a John Prine cover on Instagram, Roger Waters recorded a video sharing his thoughts, and Justin Vernon wrote on his Twitter: “A simple majority of who I am as a person, let alone a musician, is because of John Prine. He is my number 1.”

    By David Duke on Jul 3, 2020

  24. I arrived in the US to play with Led Zeppelin
    On this day in 1969, I got a passport stamp to enter the US. Led Zeppelin were to play the now famous Atlanta Pop Festival two days later on the 5th, headlined by old drinking pal Janis Joplin.

    Chuck Berry was in his air-conditioned Cadillac with blacked-out windows in the backstage area. As far as I know, he didn’t leave it. We hung out a bit before our spot but left soon after our set.

    Led Zeppelin’s next date would be the Newport Jazz Festival.

    By Derrick on Jul 3, 2020

  27. The idiots on this comments section is a microcosm of society. It doesn’t give one much hope for the future knowing that so many morons exist. Leave it to humans to self destruct and they eventually will .

    By Thomas on Jul 3, 2020

  28. Pam must have lower standards than I do .Bob Dylan told me once that John Prine had a giant Coc. He suggested that I go backstage for some suck and fuck action with John . However my standards were higher than that . This little man just wasn’t famous enough. A giant Coc is a requirement, but so is fame . To fuck me backstage , you had to have both .

    By Bebe on Jul 3, 2020

  29. I was playboys Miss November 1974 , after that my standards became much higher . I only went backstage with very famous rockers and celebrities after that . Before that I was less selective. As long as you had a big Coc . Occasionally I would go backstage with someone famous only to be disappointed by the size of his Coc . Jerry Garcia comes to mind . I would usually try to get out of it or make sure it was a one time thing . Elton John , who was Bi also was very small .

    By Bebe on Jul 3, 2020

  30. I’ve had many giant cocs . Some of the biggest were Gene Simmons, and Paul Stanley from Kiss , David Bowie , Huey Lewis Don Brewer from Grand Funk , Bob Seger , All the members of The Who , Robert Plant and John Bonham , Gregg Allman Bruce Springsteen, Steve Miller and Frank Zappa , among too many others to name . Not enough space here .

    By Bebe on Jul 3, 2020

  31. Also Bob Dylan of course, and Robbie Robertson who nicknamed his Coc Anoconda.

    By Bebe on Jul 3, 2020

  32. Bebe , how would Dylan know about Prines junk ? Was Bob gay ? That’s news to me .

    By T J on Jul 3, 2020

  33. I wish I had as much coc as Bebe. Girl to girl bebe, whats your secret

    By Billy on Jul 3, 2020

  34. leave pam alone bebe. she’s a righteous cunt. she told me to give head and not use my teeth
