What an honor to meet John Prine backstage at Red Rocks this summer! We talked about growing up on the far west side of Chicago and riding bikes around the city. We also talked italian beef and being a “couple Chicago guys” as John put it. Thanks so much to Paul Defiglia and Laura Goldhamer for the amazing time in Colorado.
