The clip aired after the premiere of "Picture Show," the socially distanced, yet intimate tribute to the beloved singer by his family, friends, and peers. Organized by Prine's widow, Fiona, the two-hour show will continue through Sunday on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch.

“It’s hard to talk about John being gone because his music is so present,” began 60 Minutes host John Dickerson during the tribute's introduction. “You feel like you know him, or more to the point, he knows you. ... It’s the chills you get on your arm when you hear him on a summer day. The time travel you feel when a song takes you back to the night you wore the grooves out on his record. We're celebrating what his music did for us, to us and with all of us.”

Artists, including Bruce Springsteen and Kiss' Paul Stanley, paid their respects to the legendary singer-songwriter.

"John and I were ‘New Dylans’ together in the early ‘70s and he was never anything but the loveliest guy in the world. A true national treasure and a songwriter for the ages,” reminisced Springsteen.

"I remember meeting him and thinking he mistook me for someone else because he was so incredibly friendly. A genuinely nice person and a huge talent, added Stanley. 

“John loved - he loved hard, he love fierce, he loved well," Fiona shared. "It’s really all he believed in.” Her "Picture Show" benefits National Alliance on Mental IllnessAlive Hospice and Make the Road New York
