I don't know if that line was written when you were working with Spector but you have. No one's going wins. I wrote just the week before studio. Yeah because you could not have known. He was going to commit murder and be in prison by the time you completed the song. No that's not where my town's future do. What was your reaction having written a song and a half with him. What was your reaction when you found out about the murder? Well I mean I was shocked but not shocked because I don't I mean I can't comment on whether I thought it was A. I thought it was supposed to be murder. You know but I do know he was always he always had guns around and he's always waiting room around you know and I'm not sure exactly how the whole thing happened. But that was the part I was not shocked about. When you guys all those guns sitting around you know something's bound to go off sooner or later and I didn't know I didn't know fell well enough to know is true personality was.

He just came out so pretty A Good Buddy of Mine Pat McLaughlin and I wrote that song and we've been writing together leaving friends longer than this. But we've been together since my missing years record in ninety one and we're just uncanny the way we work together. I mean we can finish each other's sentences you know I've just thrown image at him and he comes back with one and we don't really decide what the subject is that we're writing about. We just kind of go with wherever sounds good and feels good to both of us and the fact that that sound like that's how we approached it and it ended up as pretty as it did in his lonesome and many other things was a surprise to make because we were literally going like Ping Pong. We're going back and forth with each line in the saw. What about the melody? The melody was just another simple outright patented melody. I mean I'm trying to do is play freight train. I think I just pick up the. Yeah that's how I learned to think pick was learned anything playing China fake like Elizabeth Gotten and Mississippi. John Hurt so much so that I used to put my much fourteen years old. I'd sit in the closet and the dark in case I ever went blind to see it play. Wow that's pretty strange. So you're telling me so. Can you do it made you ever have to look down at your fingers? You're lying I can't my belly Kc Weird thing. I've practiced in the dark. We eat you've been through a lot in the past few years you've had neck. Cancer and lung cancer. Can we talk about how you were able to get back into shape to be able to perform and tour? I mean the next surgery severed nerves in your tongue. It damaged salivary glands. Did you have to learn to sing or speak again? I had to do some The they gave me a speech therapist. That was part of the therapy when I was just getting over the the initial surgery. The neck surgery. That was pretty as a pretty big surgery is Matt. I really big surgery and it was a big one and I didn't realize I had anything. Any slurring my speech whatsoever but it killed some of the nerves in your town and kind of made you have I guess they would call like Lazy. You Know Your Tongue. We just go to one side and naturally and you'd slurry some. Your words said some speech therapy but I tell them. When I was going in for that surgery I had talked to the surgeon and the radiologist and they had to do as I ever. Radiation on my throat Right across my vocal cords and the radiologist was explained to me. He was gonNA make a shield. My Bunko cords and I said have you ever heard me say as if you leave me something Vega Meggett noise as it come up with a voice on the event and The the surgeon Tomi. My Golf swing will improve after surgery. I said I goff and so at least they loving with a voice to sing. I think improve my boys of anything. I always a hard time listening to my saying before my surgery. See that a new voice any fill different about it. Yeah dropdown lowering. Feels friendlier to me. So I can actually sit in the studio and listen my sing and played bag before I run the other way so when you returned from being in the military in serving in West Germany you moved to Chicago. You move from a suburb outside of Chicago to Chicago. And you became a male men there so Was being a mailman. A good job for somebody who was writing songs in their spare time. It was great because there's really not much to do in your mail. Man I mean maybe some male men make it into an actual job once you add. They're on the same streets every day. And you you recognize the houses you know you're in the right straight. Just go out there and stick the mail in the mailbox and in other words I. I used to like in my mail route to the library with no books. It was like a Magin was free. Your own Though Tamraz and the mail route I rely on my first record. Welcome bill was that like maybe a good thing that your body was kinda occupied with walking the mail route. Your mind was free to about lyrics without having to send. You won't be thinking about the weather it's a joke about. There really was never so happy as the day after the post office the dark. What time were you delivering mail? Doug's Oh the dog was. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yes yeah get bitten in the best possible place and ripped my pants ed to to go over to yard. That was really embarrassing. Mailman outfit on with you with the as are you paying tour at the dog that you look like a cartoon? I think I've seen that cartoon and there you go. I was the car dude. So you know. In addition to the neck surgery that you had for cancer a few years later you had lung cancer and you had an operation on one of your longs I know you knew Roger Ebert and he gave a boost to your career really early on before anybody knew you. He gave you a great review. And you were just performing in Chicago before you'd recorded and I don't know if you remain close. But he had cancer and he had jaw surgery that Basically left him unable to speak. I was wondering if you communicated with him at all about your surgery. I think he was still he would have still been alive. Well he After Roger got sick I was I had players show and him and his wife came to it and this was after. My surgery is turn behind the missing years. And we've got to talk a little bit but obviously it was a social situation. You know who's more like we looked at each other. We members of the club both having been through the surgeries him him even more so he was really up at the particular time that he wrote a review me. I was a mailman step in that. I was just saying this one night a week in the Chicago Club. The the Fifth Tag on West Armitage in Roger Walked Arrow movie that he was supposed to review for the next day This is a Thursday night and Friday was the big the big day for the entertainment section in the Chicago Sun.

Because of popcorn was too salty and the movie theater and some thome him to go in the back room and listen to this kid. I was a kid and he wrote a full page on. Singing Mailman delivers the message.

Remembering John Prine
"For more than fifty years ago John wrote songs that were sad and funny and overall just human songs about regular work in life songs about quiet ordinary days rolling by the songs that were incredibly profound he wrote songs you could grab your guitar and sing along with songs about simple honest truths songs you could use a sort of a road map to life songs that use the language that you spoke with your friends at the bar and songs that you could spend three or four weeks parsing and trying to figure out John died on Tuesday at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville he died from complications of COPD nineteen he was seventy three years old that road map to live John sang about so often he was singing to one person in particular take a listen to this I want to say this is when whenever I've read naming this sounds like advice S. as in I'm talking to myself and you know I was trying to convince myself for that at the time that time don't get wrapped up in your anger you know because people don't realize it but there you can be your own best friend your own best your own worst enemy yeah it's hard to say if you don't know yourself for for some reason you're the hardest person to get up for your case you know it's it's how it's difficult to forgive yourself but within three years of these that's kind of where I was staying there and it works for me is that I'm say this John Prine and Mariposa folk festival in a really Ontario over his seventy three years John's songwriting genius caught the attention of pretty much the biggest names in music Bob Dylan called him a midwestern mind trips to the nth degree who writes beautiful songs Kris Kristofferson hated him after he discovered him because his songs were so good and so easy Bonnie Raitt famously did a cover of his song angel from Montgomery which launched her career John this paper trail for tons of younger folk and country singers people like Jason Isbell and Margo price and Kacey Musgrave if you ever saw John do a live show he tell these hilarious stories and then sing the most devastating songs which is the combination that you really need in twenty eighteen John released his album tree of forgiveness at that time it was first new record in thirteen years and now well I guess it's in honor of John Prine I want to revisit this really special interview I did with him around the time that album came out I got to talk about a line of his that I repeat myself at least once a week even now as we go through this whole thing here's my conversation with the late John Prine when I get to heaven MACA guides in thank you for more blessings than one man can stand then I'm gonna get a guitar and started writing little band check in do swell down any day after live grand and then I'm going to give it back and is that this is there is god is my witness the judge John you can you

He could talk to you like your buddy at the bar and he could also be found in rape poetry that you'd spend weeks deciphering so he was the total package with simplicity of his music. That made it accessible to anyone and especially the working people like. He felt like he could be a working class working person songwriter. That never talk down to him because he was a member of the working class. You know that the story of John Prion is that he was a mailman who wrote songs on his route. You know and he gets up at an open Mike at a place called the old town school of folk music in Chicago. You know and decided to show off a couple of these songs that he had written while out delivering packages and he gets up on stage and he sings. Its Song. The first song you sing is is pretty much the closest he ever had to hit. It was angel from Montgomery which became a gigantic hit by Bonnie Raitt. After my mother it's the first ever sinks and there's no applause. Packed Room has no applause. And he says he really thought that he had messed up at all. This time that he had told himself in the postal van that it wasn't gonNA work turns out. He was rakes. No one was clapping..
