    Some sad news I'm afraid...

    John Prine died Tuesday at the age of 73.

    His family announced his death from complications from the coronavirus; he died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, where he had been hospitalized last month.

    I read that, too. I was thinking that he had other serious medical conditions, but didn’t remember what they were.

    He has had a lot of health problems. In the late 1990's he had neck surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. The surgery also removed parts of his neck, severed some nerves in his tongue. In 2013 he was operated on for lung cancer. He had made a remarkable comeback.

    There is a great thread on John Prine here. I didn't want to spoil that one. :(

    It took a year, off and on, for this thread to be created. In the meantime, it was like having Mr. Prine around, as someone you gradually got to know. Makes it more sad.

    I saw Prine at the Feline Fine Arts Center/Wolftrap Farm Park in northern Virginia. That must have been at least 30 years ago.

    The Mammals - Unwed Fathers
    Thank you John Prine for the oodles of songs. The playful, the mournful, the ones that remind us of others we’ve known or remind us of ourselves. I learned the third verse of this one wrong from my Mom but I hope you don’t mind if I still sing it like she sings it. It’s an honor to join with so many others in celebrating your birthday (10/11/20) with a damn fine song.

    John Prine Performs ‘Paradise’ with Marty Stuart

    While John Prine was in the army, he received a letter from his father about how coal-mining companies had rolled in and ruined the town of Paradise, Kentucky, and the surrounding areas Prine had visited as a child. He responded to his father in the form of a song.
