  1. I have been reading lots of news about him and saw various video tributes one including from Joan Baez and supposedly Dylan was a a great admirer too. I don’t think I had come across any of his music.

    • Its interesting he only had a couple albums that even cracked the Top 100 album chart- his final album a couple years ago was by far his biggest making the Top 10– he never had a song make the Top 100 singles chart- but was a universally loved songwriter- by other songwriters. I didn’t know this but the film critic Roger Ebert discovered him- he was at a movie- the popcorn was too salty and he left- going into a bar and a singing mailman was playing- he was so impressed he wrote a review of it in the paper- and John Prine’s career was off!

    • Fascinating. I saw a documentary about the film critic Roger Ebert a few years back. So it just took a single review from him huh. Well sometimes that’s just all it takes. Thanks for filling me in Hans. Cheers.
