    The One of a Kind Man In Black

    What can I say-- he's an icon. I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Hurt, and all the songs in between ...powerful.  I saw Johnny Cash in Las Vegas in 1990 or 91, I think, with The Highwaymen. It was phenomenal.

    Hurt

    And you can have it all, my empire of dirt... I like the earlly stuff too, and the prison albums, but for me his work with Rick Rubin is the stuff I listen to most. Excellent cover versions, each of which he made his own And the video for Hurt....I cry every time it ends.

    I Remember The First Time I Heard Cash...

    My dad put a song on for everyone to listen to (It was Christmastime, my grandparents were here too), it was A Boy Named Sue. We all listened and laughed together, I loved the song, but I didn't know anything about the Man in Black. Then a few months later when I was watching...

    I was born in a completely different generation,

    yet I still can't seem to get enough of his music. I've yet to meet someone who feels the same, though. I'm an intense music lover, I'll listen to basically anything and everything.

    Hurt

    I never really considered Johnny Cash, until i watched the video for his version of the NIN song Hurt on youtube, and i can honestly say it really moved me. Ever since then, I've loved his music. Here's the link for Hurt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmVAWKfJ4Go Its an amazing...

    Hi

    I absolutely can't decide which artist I love! It's a tie between Johnny Cash, Elvis, Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra! But they have all been in my life since when I was a baby my grandpa always played them. Everyone keep saying just because I'm a teen I'm going to grow out of it...

    There You Go

    I love There you go, great song just recently realised how much I love it. I love Johnny's ability to convey the must complex things in such simple lyrics, he was great.

    The Man In Black...

    I had never been very interested in country music, and I still don't really embrace the genre, but when I started to listen to Johhny Cash, I developed a new appreciation for his brand of country music and the time period he was active in. To this day, the only country music I'll...

    I Met Johnny Cash In An Elevator

    Okay the title is misleading. I was just a baby. But that meeting must have had an impact on me. I'm a huge Cash fan. I love all kinds of music but I never get bored with listening to anything Johnny Cash ever did.

    One Of My Favorites....

    I remember back in the 60's and 70's he had some songs that were so hilarious, one of them being "A Boy Named Sue,", but there was another that told the story of a guy being eaten by a snake - never heard a rock singer tell a comic story in song, and I'm a rocker from way back...

    Johnny Cash

    Normally I'm not into country and western at all . But Johnny Cash's voice and sound is so unique that even I, who actually hate country music, have to capitulate. All power to the man in black. RIP, Johnny A fan

    I Hurt Myself Today.

    A true artist, and one that will be missed.  Could mold Country classics and cover Heavy Metal songs with a down-home flair. Honestly, there are many musical acts that I enjoy, but only a select few have touched my heart.  RIP, Mr. Cash.  See you in Heaven someday...
