Jeffrey Prine (no relation to John Prine) was born in 1954 in Brooklyn, New York. He is one of nine children. Jeff’s father was an orchestra leader during the 1940’s through to the 1970’s. As a result, the Prine household was very musical. In addition to Jeffrey, two of his brothers became musicians. His elder brother, Glenn, started playing guitar in the early 1960’s. He introduced Jeff to the guitar. It was apparent that Jeff had an aptitude for playing. The music scene of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s provided a plethora of guitarists. During this period, Jeff and his brothers saw many of these talented musicians. They frequented the Fillmore East and the Action House on numerous occasions. In 1971, Jeff was awestruck when he saw Peter Green play with Fleetwood Mac. Jeff accounts this experience as the most inspirational and influential of his music development. In addition to the inspiring guitar skills of Peter Green, a sunburst Les Paul became the coveted instrument, which he later acquired.
