COVID-19 has claimed the life of music legend John Prine.

The ingenious singer-songwriter explored the heartbreaks, indignities and absurdities of everyday life with his music and had even written a song about the promised land.

It began…

When I get to heaven, I’m going to shake God’s hand and thank him for more blessings than one man can stand.

Then I’m going to get a guitar and form a rock and roll band and check into a swell hotel.    Ain’t the afterlife grand?

Prine was hospitalized last month with coronavirus symptoms.  He was then moved to intensive care and placed on a respirator.

He died last night.

John Prine was 73.
