    Default Larry Campbell and John Prine ill with Covid 19

    Sending my prayers tonight to Larry Campbell, wonderful player of many instruments including mandolin, very ill with Covid 19 and prayers for his wife and musical partner Teresa

    and also John Prine my songwriting hero, critical with Covid 19 and his wife Fiona, who tested positive for the virus

    Thanks for posting the news, sad and as much a nightmare as this has turned to. Add opera legend Placido Domingo to the growing list of names recognized by many.

    Jackson Browne too. Sadly, our heros are old, just like us. Prayers for all who are stricken by this disease. Prine had lung cancer about 8 years ago and I'm sure has diminished capacity.

    Larry appears to be well on the way to recovery, he played his mandolin for the first time since the virus knocked him down, and has allowed The Rolling Stone magazine to interview him over the phone to talk about his bout with COVID-19

    Depending on the test (there are quite a few different manufacturers making these tests and remember many of these tests were rushed through the FDA process) the new result could be a false positive. I worked for a company that made rapid tests and even test kits that were on the market a long time will throw false positive or negative results at times. It’s all uncharted ground right now. At least Larry is feeling better.
    There's nothing better than first-hand experience.

    That's true; I'm in full agreement with your assessment. We're in uncharted waters. Glad Larry and Andy Statman and others are in recovery now. Recovered numbers seem to be on the incline now in many places.
