Went and saw one of my favorite singers last night in Minneapolis with my buddy Chris Terzich. John Prine was great — he sang about 40 songs, many of them from his first couple of albums from back in the early ’70s. The crowd went nuts over “Flag Decal” and “Sam Stone,” two songs about the Vietnam War. He had a great three-piece bluegrass band backing him. Made me a bit nostalgic for college, where I first saw him in concert. It’s there that my buddy Lou Ruprecht and I played John Prine songs on guitar on the sundeck of Gilbert Addams dorm with the now-famous actress Jayne Brook. Check John out on Austin City Limits TV show here. In the words of the man himself, “Ahhhh, baby, we gotta go now.”
