Thread Name: Obit: Johnny Cash passes (1932-2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Johnny Cash passes
Johnny Cash was probably one of America's greatest musical treasures, and his absolutely no-nonsense performing style carved him a niche all his own. Who else could have been such close friends with a man like Roy Orbison, so private, shy and elusive, and have the room in his heart and his band for an aging, yet still totally smokin' Carl Perkins in his late 60's-era live band? Johnny Cash was and always will be totally unique. I have heard many singers attempt to do justice to his signature bass singing and bluesy inflections, but no one ever will come close. EVER.

He got freed from "this prison" and he "moved it on a little farther down the line" as he always said he would. (Folsom Prison Blues)

I will be blessed to see a Christian brother like John R. Cash in the new Kingdom of God one day.
