Iím grateful for this thread. Somehow, Iíd never heard of Prine or heard his music. Based on recommendations from this thread Iíve found several songs that I find just great. That Angels From Montgomery with Susan Tedeschi is so very good. Hello In There, Other Side of Town, and a few others.

Iím exploring his catalog now and itís a pleasant experience. He comes across as a really good guy. And obviously a gifted writer.

Thanks ER gang!

I wonder if you're familiar with Prine's old sidekick, the late Steve Goodman. When I hear "Hello in There" I think of this song by Steve:

Since you mention Steve Goodman, look up John singing "Souvenirs" together with Steve Goodman. Its only two men with two guitars but they fill the auditorium with great music.

There's an interview show recording somewhere on YouTube with Prine and Bill Murray where they talked about working across the street from one another in Chicago in the early days. Great stuff.

I had a reminder, but got distracted by dinner. Anyone got a link? I'm off to find one.

OK, here's what I found, and though it's live, you can rewind to the start and catch up.

He was featured in a very interesting, well-made documentary I watched a few years ago called If You're Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast. Here's a quote about it.
Quote:
Carl Reiner, the 95-year-old comedian, writer, actor, and director, has a running gag about life as a nonagenarian. “Every morning … I pick up my newspaper, get the obituary section, and see if I’m listed,” he explains. “If I’m not, I have my breakfast.” He stages a version of this routine for the new documentary If You’re Not In the Obit, Eat Breakfast, airing Monday night on HBO, in which Reiner and a handful of other 90-something personalities mull old age, and the possible reasons for their longevity. “Is it luck? Genes? Modern medicine?” he wonders. “Or are we doing something right?”
I can only hope to live as happily and healthily into my 90s as he did.

When Your Show of Shows was on TV, I was coming of age and loved the humour

I also had a crush on Mary as Laura Petrie. Of course she was too old for me.

One of the greats.

When prominent entertainment figures pass like this, I always find myself saying, who are the "Carl Reiners" of the current day?

Invariably I come up short trying to name one.

RIP - Charlie Daniels

Charlie Daniels, passed away after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke at 83 years.

Quote:
Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame best known for "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," died Monday morning after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83.
Daniels' death was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs, to The Tennessean, part of the USA TODAY Network. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels, Jr.
By the time the Charlie Daniels Band topped the charts with “Devil” in 1979, the instrumentalist, singer and songwriter had long established a remarkable, multifaceted career in Music City. As a session musician, he played on three of Bob Dylan’s albums — including the revolutionary “Nashville Skyline” — as well as recordings for Ringo Starr, Leonard Cohen, Tammy Wynette and other luminaries.
