Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
I haven't said the man wasn't talented! I did say that I was a big fan and was heavily into him for 5 or 6 years ( I was performing the Johnny Cash songbook in the early 60s. My version of " Tennesee Flattop Box" was very popular -well, my mum liked it, anyway). What I can't reconcile is the status he has recently attained; it seems out of all proportion to his actual talent.
