Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
I think a lot of posters on this thread show signs of "buying in to the myth" of Johnny Cash.

Danks constructed a straw man and wants to call the shots in the discussion.

The NPR radio program American Routes did a Johnny Cash tribute program last week. (They interviewed Rosanne Cash the week before, also very interesting). Find the archive here.




Get Rhythm: A Tribute to Johnny Cash
It's a two-hour tribute in song and story to the Man in Black. We'll hear from his family, friends and associates on the contradictions--preacher, outlaw, loving family man, rockabilly rebel--that made the man. Voices include Rosanne Cash; son John Carter Cash; sister Joanne Cash Yates; bassist and original member of the Tennessee Two Marshall Grant; guitarist Johnny Western; producer Rick Rubin; writer and critic Michael Streissguth; and of course, Johnny Cash.
