Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
I agree with every word Ron said really. No disrespect to your opinions, Danks. But all the same, Johnny Cash was just about the only country icon I ever cared about. His recordings in the seventies and eighties did not interest me much, I admit. However, his stunning final four albums alone would be enough to crown most careers. He was slave to neither fashion nor convention. He really did it all his own way. A flawed giant indeed, but a man of monumental dignity, sincerity, talent and commitment. I miss him.
