Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
I wonder how Johnny - talent wise - is rated by his peers? I know that Waylon Jennings was very dismissive of his talents. Musically, Johnny was very limited. I remember an interview he gave in which he said that he was offered " The City of New Orleans" ( via a recording on a tape). He loved the song, but couldn't work out the chords! Arlo could!
