Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Prine (born October 10, 1946, in Maywood, Illinois) is an American country/folk singer-songwriter. He has been active as a recording artist and live performer since the early 1970s. Prine is the son of William Prine and Verna Hamm. Prine started playing guitar at age 14, taught by his brother, David. He was a postman for five years and served in the Army during the Vietnam War era, although he served in Germany, before beginning his musical career in Chicago. In the late 1960s, while Prine was delivering mail in Maywood, Illinois, he began to sing at open-mic evenings at the Fifth Peg on Armitage Avenue. Prine was initially a spectator, reluctant to perform, but eventually did so in response to a "You think you can do better?" comment made to him by another performer.show more
