Just heartbroken over the passing of the legendary songwriter John Prine. I remember our first photo shoot together, at the Melrose Billiards in Nashville. Not many folks knew he was quite the snooker player. I grew up playing snooker in my grandfathers basement. We bonded pretty quickly.

Cigarette in hand he methodically cleaned my clock. Lesson learned. Godspeed JP.
