    Hurt

    I know that Cash did not write Hurt...but when he sings it...it's so personal...even more so than when Trent Reznor sings it.  Is it because of the life he led?  Because he felt that he really did hurt so many people?

    "It's like a novelist writing far out things.

    If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it's off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent I think." ...Johnny Cash

    Hello, I am Johnny Cash.

    When I heared this words for the first time, it was over. No more escape for me. I got hooked to the music of the Man In Black. I heared him first 1974. His song One Piece At The Time was on American Country Countdown with Bob Kingsley. At that time I followed that show...

    From Childhood On

    As a kid I remember listening to Johnny Cash.  My favorite is a "Boy Named Sue".   He was such a story teller and some of his song hit home.

    Cocain blues, and Sunday Morning Coming down are some of the best written songs ever...   They speak to me. Not sure what that says about me though?

    Johnny Cash Was My Favorite Singer, So I Collect Memorabilia

    I'd always go to his concerts when they came to town, and I'd drive hours to see them if they were close, so I just had to start collecting anything of his, especially if it was signed. I found someone who is selling a signed first edition copy of Man In White for cheap on ebay...

    A Tortured Soul

    I'm absolutely hooked on the Biography show and recently watched a two hour episode on Johnny Cash.  Yeah Yeah, I'm from Nashville, like Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, I'm supposed to love him.  But truth be known, I grew up in Detroit Rock City in the 60s and 70s...

    The first song I ever heard by him was actually,

    "Boy Named Sue." I was listening to my dad's music-that was where I found all my favorite music. I remember memorizing it and performing it for family gatherings. 😊 As time went on, and I got older, I became fond of a lot of his other songs, my favorites still being, "The...

    Black And Blue

    After the movie, I liked this doomed artist even more.  He was so much more than a superficial country singer.  His voice didn't fit.  It was an ominous voice that spoke -he spoke more than sang- of his personal drama and of the state of affairs in his country...

    Sunday Morning Comin Down

    1965 Johnny Cash kicks out the stage lights at

    the Grand Ole Opry then crashes a Cadillac into a telephone pole. Gotta love stories like that. Beats eight to nine hours of telling someone you're a customer service representative all day.
