American Icon- Johnny Cash passed away 15 years ago today at the age of seventy-one. Johnny Cash to me seemed like one of those larger than life figures. From his beginnings with Sam Phillips at Sun to the end with Rick Ruben at American Recordings- a fascinating career that had many ups and a few downs but was always interesting. Recommended read -Robert Hilburn’s – Johnny Cash: The Life.
I am not a fan of music videos in general but one of the best was the Johnny Cash video of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt” – not the first song that Johnny took and made his own. Great version of the song and a moving video.
