Hard Way To Go

Just got the sad news that John Prine has passed away due to Corona virus complications. The rightly revered country and folk singer/songwriter was 73. Seeing Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan perform together on tv in the late sixties, Prine felt he "could fit straight in between the two of 'em" and he was right of course. Miss him.

Beautiful song from a beautiful man.

More sad news. This track is one of my all-time favourites, Ramone!

Sad news. I was fortunate to see him once at a folk festival. A busy tent in the middle of a field is hardly the most intimate of venues, but Prine's music reduced the general hubbub to an awed silence. Rest easy John.

One of mine, too, Marie.
Jealous that you saw him play once Swede, I never had the chance alas.
