Oh sh*t no! I loved Fountains of Wayne and he has been doing great work with The Monkees in recent years. That is horrible news.


What was he doing with the Monkees?

Jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, 94 of Covid-19. Played with a lot of the greats and rather interestingly played a 7 string guitar.

And also wrote a couple of the songs. He performed the same role on their Christmas album a couple of years ago including this great track that is a rare Christmas song you can listen to all year.

Very sorry to hear about Schlesinger. Fountains Of Wayne were immediately endearing to me because they got their name from a very real store in the town of Wayne, New Jersey, not too far from where I grew up.

Damn. Another one of my favourites. So much more than just a soul singer. If you have never seen the film Still Bill I highly recommend it. I actually thought he was a little older than that.

Nice tribute from Sarah Jarosz on Instagram

Quote
The loss of John Prine weighs very heavy on my heart. How fortunate are we to have existed within his orbit? I fondly remember a couple of tours where I opened for John solo, and he was always so warm and kind to me even as I was just getting my sea legs on the open road. On one such tour I was too young to rent a car to drive myself to the shows, so he invited me to ride along with him and the band. He was behind the wheel and I’ll never forget sitting in the back seat watching him drive us from one gig to the next. He seemed so content in the driver’s seat and was filled with joy at the sight of any Dairy Queen. We stopped and had lunch and ice cream there. Those nights on tour he invited me to sing “In Spite Of Ourselves” and “Paradise” with him and he always looked at me and smiled while we sang. His audiences’ reverence of those songs opened my eyes to what it means to be a great songwriter. He changed peoples’ lives with his songs. The last time I sang with him was with Sara and Aoife at Red Rocks last September. It was a magical, perfect evening. John made us feel so at home. Always. And that’s how I’ll always remember him. Smiling and singing a song. My heart goes out to Fiona, his entire family, his band and those who worked alongside him. Rest In Peace John Prine.

Bummer - one of the best. Apparently from coronavirus...
His wife is from Donegal and they were regular visitors here so warm tributes in the local press.

This is the third passing to break my heart in a week after Adam Schlesinger and Bill Withers. I am a huge Prine fan and was lucky enough to see him once at the Shepherd's Bush Empire about 15 years ago. His performance of Lake Marie remains one of the highlights of my gig going life.

I finally got to see John Prine on his last stop in Austin in 2018. It was a magical evening, and I'll never forget it.
