Watch Roger Waters Cover John Prine’s “Paradise”
Roger Waters is the latest musician to pay tribute to John Prine by way of a cover. The country songwriting legend passed away last week. Waters covered Prine’s “Paradise,” which appeared on his 1971 self-titled debut and is about the effects of coal strip mining, an environmental political cause that is no doubt close to Waters’ own heart. “My friend John Prine died,” Waters wrote in a short statement. “Miss you, brother.”
Last week, Waters shared a different cover recorded while in self-isolation, of the Chilean protest song “The Right To Live In Peace.”
