John Prine; Soulful Writer, Musician & Vocalist

Normally not phased much by too many famous folks facing life's struggles like the rest of us. It's life. But John Prine goes way back; maybe like some sort of an unintended choreographer for life's journals and photo albums.

It was a show at the Panida Theatre in Sandpoint, Idaho about 1987 or early 1988, maybe, when life looked bleak, and there was a cross-roads to be dealt with.

Lots of memories and changes before, during and after that show.

Johnny P is struggling with the current viral threat, and is in rough shape, per recent news blips. He's whipped cancer twice, but now faces this.

Jesus. Beat cancer twice only to get taken out because some guy didn't wash his hands.

Fantastic new article about the man. He sounds like such an amazing person. Ignore the title, it must have been written before the hospitalization. It's about him hustling pool and writing new tunes and just being The Man.

Back in 1899, when everyone was singing "Auld Lang Syne"
A century took a long, long time for every boy and girl.
Now there's only one thing that I'd like to know
Where did the 20th century go?
I'd swear it was here just a minute ago
All over this world.

Chorus:
And now the 20th century is almost over,
Almost over, almost over
The 20th century is almost over
All over this world.
All over this world, all over this world
The 20th century is almost over, all over this world.

Does anyone remember the Great Depression?
I read all about it in True Confession
I'm sorry I was late for the recording session
But somebody put me on hold.
Has anybody seen my linoleum floors
Petroleum jelly, and two World Wars?
They got stuck in the revolving doors
All over this world.
And now...

Hoping Mr. Prine can fight this elusive virus. Saw him 3x in my life, usually with Arlo Guthrie or Bonnie Raitt.

God Speed, John!

JP often engaged the audience in ways that even if the story was rehearsed or told many times, it rarely showed unless you'd heard it before.

A favorite involved his time in the US Army during the 'Nam era, and the fact that he'd filled out his aptitude test randomly, just filling in circles, after which a CO came and told him he was a mechanical genius, and they put him in the motor pool.

One day, preceding an inspection, they discovered they had an extra dozer, and as JP stated, in Uncle Sam's Army, having too many of something was as bad as having too few. So they took one dozer, dug out a pit, placed the extra dozer in the hole, and buried it. Problem solved.

There are many stories like that. Different subjects, but delightfully real.

Here's an interview preceding one of his later albums, 'The Road to Forgiveness.'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPBoRxqTEtM

A private Christmas party a year+ ago, with Gordon Lightfoot in attendance; one of JP's musical heroes.

Lastly, Kacey Musgraves sings, 'Burn One with John Prine,' to John Prine, live, on stage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6A-pRJxCKR8

Years gone by of feeling the spirit of this guy... with a thumb out on the side of the road, milking goats or slopping hogs, at protests, and more. Someone commented that he's an American treasure. Yep.

Thanks everyone. I'm out of rep.

HG Griffin, great article, encapsulates JP nicely.

Humanity that rarely stumbled downward in karmic value due to fame.

I hope JP continues onward, but I have my concerns at the moment.
