Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Becoming an icon is not reward for talent alone. Promotion, opportunity, a fan base, exposure, image (real and perceived), self belief, luck, and many other things contribute.

Is Cash the most deserving icon? Perhaps not, but he ain't the least deserving.
