Thread Name: Let's talk John Prine
Subject: RE: Let's talk John Prine
I'm seeing this thread for the first time, and saw John live last night for the first time, too. Absolutely packed, sold out house. John and his band put on an incredible show that had the audience hanging on every note played, every word, spoken or sung.
Ebbie says "He electrified the audience and the audience seemed to do the same for him." So true.
John's ability to put realities of the human condition into concise, common phrases that imply a thousand words and a depth of wisdom and experience - is extraordinary. I never understood that completely until seeing him last night.
AND, he seemed absolutley delighted to be here, doing what he was doing!
Great show, folks, if you ever get the chance.....
