JOHN PRINE SICK



Log in to see fewer ads
I just read he has the virus and is on life support.

I have been listening to him for 40 plus years,one of the greatest storytellers,singers ihave ever heard.

I'm praying for him and ask that you would to.

I hope all will be well. Country singer Joe Diffie died Sunday from Covid-19 complications.

I really hate hearing that. He's no youngster and hasn't been, for quite a while. One of my favorite song writers & performers. Heard him live and up close more than once a long while back when he used to hit the road w/Tom Waits and they would play at a club here called the Palladium. Last time I saw him live was in Wilshire, CA at some place whose name I can't/don't recall any longer. That's such harsh news to hear. Its very easy for me to pray for him. Thanks for mentioning it. Some artistes affect us more than others and he is one, for me.

I saw that yesterday. Sad news. He's a talented singer/songwriter with a singular knack for hitting nails on the head; often in a very quirky and/or funny way. He's had other health issues in the past too.

He still is. Still touring and making records on his own and with other artists the last I heard.

So sorry to hear that. I discovered him many years ago and bought a few of his CDs. Listen to them frequently. He does great ballads, each with a real life story. Sure hope he makes it!

Often wondered how he knew so much about my marriage.

Learned of this yesterday evening while listening to a local public radio folk and roots music station. Been listening to John Pine for about 40 years.

So glad to learn of so many John Prine fans on RFC. First saw him in '74 or '75 and he's been in my top 5 ever since. C'mon, John, time to pull through another one!

My prayers are with him and all the other infected by the Covid-19 virus.

I've been a big John Prine fan for a long time as well. To listen to some of his lyrics one would be led to believe he has been through more broken relations in his life than anyone. I guess the lyric that comes to mind in our current situations is,

It don't make much sense that common sense don't make no sense no more.

Sadly John Prine, one of America's greatest song writers passed away Tuesday, April 7th, 2020. I hate this disease.
