    I consider myself pretty knowledgable about music but I hadn’t heard of John Prine until recent weeks.

      Depends on your age and exposure I suppose. As far back as ’72, K.Kristofferson’s “Jesus was a Capricorn” had the subtitle “…owed (sic) to John Prine”. This may have helped give Prine exposure in his early days….it certainly introduced me to him.

        @Formerly – Lucky you, he created a wonderful body of work in his own unique style, i’m not an expert on him at all but much like yourself I will try to catch up with his work, Rest in peace, John.

    Rachel Peer (former Mrs Prine who is the subject of that song) herself lived in Dublin in the late 80s early 90s
    A well known and established bass player
    I used to knock around with her
    Staying in her Rathgar flat before I moved up permanently myself

    Last I saw or heard from Rachel was her telling me she was going back to the States, LA
    Where her then *Fiancé had got some opportunities lined up
    Haven’t seen or heard a word since 92 93ish

    *The name Gary springs to mind, he was an actor in Fair City I think
