Absolutely no Newton connection here but ….
John Prine died today of cornavirus complications.
He was a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist. His career as a recording artist spanned from the 70’s till today, but he was most famous as an incredibly talented and influential songwriter.
His best known song was the exquisite Angel From Mongomery, made famous by Bonnie Raiit, but my favorite John Prine song, that informed my whole adult life, was just his plain ole voice singing It’s a Big Old Goofy World.
Rest in peace John Prine.
