Dammit, this one really hits hard. Lots of memories. One of the best singer/songwriters of all time. Glad I got to see him one last time in October, where he put on a another great, long show despite his age and health. At the end, he put down his guitar and danced off the stage...

my father died, on the porch outside,
on an August afternoon,
I sipped bourbon and cried with a friend by the light of the moon.

So its Hurry! Hurry! Step right up,
its a matter of life and death,
the sun is going down and the moon is just holding it breath.

He always seemed like such a nice, cool guy.

Quote :
"“He is everything you love about his songs. He's warm, funny and wise — although you get the sense he's not trying to be. He cares about people and their smallest details and, as his lyrics might suggest, he'll find a way to work pork chops into the conversation.” "

TIL he co-wrote You Never Even Called Me By My Name with Steve Goodman, but refused credit because he thought it was terrible.

Why couldn't it have taken David Allen Coe instead?

wow news to me too

Quote :
""You Never Even Called Me by My Name" is a song written by Steve Goodman and John Prine. Prine requested to be uncredited on the song as he thought it was a "goofy, novelty song" and didn't want to "offend the country music community". Goodman released the song on his eponymous 1971 debut album Steve Goodman to little acclaim. It was more famously covered by country music singer David Allan Coe on his 1975 album Once Upon a Rhyme. It was the third single release of Coe's career and his first Top Ten hit, reaching a peak of number eight on the Billboard country singles charts. The song, over five minutes long, is known for its humorous self-description as "the perfect country and western song.""

(and while DAC is a degenerate asshole, he's an incredible songwriter as well)

Eh. Incredible is a pretty strong word. Like, I'm not going to call him an incredibly shitty human being, even though he's pretty awful by all accounts other than his own. He's got a few great songs, but he also wrote some absolute garbage.

DACs got a huge catalog, and a lot of very well written music (many that aren't on his Greatest Hits albums)

But anyways, back to Prine. We'd been watching a lot of YouTube vids since hearing about him getting sick. This continues to sadden me.

I can’t remember which song of his it was, but while I was listening a few days ago, I thought to myself, “this sounds like You Never Even Called Me By My Name” when it came on

now it makes a lot more sense
