This is the John Prine I was privileged to see in person, thanks to my daughter. It's one of the best gifts she ever gave me.
I see all those memes people do, with questions like "What living person would you most like to meet?"
I would like to meet John Prine, and then let him do all the talking. I really have nothing to say to him. I would sit there, mouth agape, and listen.
I wish I could play guitar like John Prine, and he isn't even all that good compared to the real pros like Chet Atkins.
I want to BE John Prine.
On another note, his friend Iris Dement has cut a new CD that will be released very soon.
Here's to John Prine.
