John Prine is critically ill with Covid-19 complications. He's been in Intensive Care since last Thursday. He was "in critical condition", on a ventilator, but latest reports I've found on the Internet say that his condition is now being described as "stable" but not improving, still in Intensive Care on a ventilator. As I know very well with my closest friend's two times in Intensive Care, it could go either way.

You've probably either never heard of John Prine or you're a fan. He is quite unusual in the way that he is not very famous, most people have never heard of him, but almost everyone who has heard of him loves him, and countless famous musicians are fans, from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springfield to Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. If it was someone like Bob Dylan in Intensive Care, it would be news headlines, but John Prine is both brilliant and not very well known. He's a brilliant musician, songwriter and lyricist, with a wonderful subtle sense of humour.

I hope I don't hear any news about him in the coming days, because I think it'll be a case of no news is good news, as I'm sure that if he died it would be well reported, but I'll regularly keep checking on the Internet for news. I've got a ticket to see him in concert at the end of August, that's very unlikely to happen now, but it would be wonderful if it did.

:pray:

I remember seeing some of his videos on CMT years ago. IIRC it was on one of their 'specialty' shows, spotlighting country music outside of the mainstream. "Stone Country", perhaps?

Prayers for his recovery.

very familiar with him ... angel from montgomery is a favorite

denise, if you like john, please check out guy clark and townes van zandt (if you haven't already)... they both exhibit the same extraordinary songwriting ability as mr prine... in fact, john and emmylou did a duet that went on guy's tribute album... the song itself is one of my top 10 from guy (it's actually impossible to get a top 10 because there are too many vying for the position , but this particular one has to be in my top 5)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCLZnCiH_k0

a few of my personal favorites

i could go on... and if you'd like some tvz recommendations, i'd be pleased to share those too...just let me know

Joe Diffie passed away from coronavirus complications the other day. He was 61. I used to love listening to him before Country took to autotune. :cry:

Yes, fs mentioned that in one of the other threads.

I liked some of his songs. "John Deere Green" was a favorite.

the latest from his wife, fiona

Quote:
This is John’s 8th day in ICU . He is receiving excellent medical care and being treated with kindness and compassion by the entire team looking after him day and night. I cannot be with him which makes this nightmare all the more distressing. ...

As you know, John was put on a ventilator last Saturday. He still needs quite a bit of help with his breathing. Like many patients currently in ICU beds all around the world, John has pneumonia in both lungs. He has also developed some peripheral issues that are being treated. with meds, including antibiotics. He is very ill and yet I remain hopeful that he can continue to fight this devastating virus and come home where we can care for him.

I don’t have the words to adequately Thank You all for the outpouring of love and prayers that John and our family have received this last week. Please continue to send Love, Prayers and Positive Energy to John. He needs us now more than ever. John loves you and I love you too.

Wonderful humour and originality, and very appropriate that that's his final song on his final album.
