Thread Name: Obit: John Prine (1946-2020)
Subject: RE: Obit: John Prine (1946-2020)
Under ordinary circumstances, coffeehouses, open-mikes, living rooms and concert stages would be ringing with people performing John's songs over the next few days. We would be honoring him by acknowledging how important his songs are to us. Instead, the same disease that took him from us makes it impossible to gather in his honor. Facebook and YouTube are okay but, dammit, I want to sing John's songs around a campfire with my friends. Damn this coronavirus's eyes indeed.
