Upsetting news from the family of the great singer songwriter John Prine. He has coronavirus, is in the ICU and in critical condition. His fans around the world I know are sending him prayers.
Ironically, John has had a huge Renaissance in the last couple of years. The author of staples like “Hello in There” and “Angel from Montgomery” re-emerged to accolades with his album, “The Tree of Forgiveness.” It went to number 5 on the charts, and Prine was suddenly be feted all over the world.
Two times Prine has survived cancer. We’ve got to put our money on him now. At 73, he has a lot more to do.
