Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
I've never liked any mainstream country performers except Hank williams. That includes Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and any others who may fall into the "been-doin'-it-so-long-they're-cool" crowd. I thought they sucked in 1970 and I haven't changed my mind since then. Granted, they're more genuine than most of the current young country crowd, but so what? I'll take any good bluegrass, old-time or Irish band over any of 'em.
