Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Jack the Sailor says,"I'm not really comfortable calling any music artist an icon. But if any artist deserves that title, it is Johnny."

My sentiments exactly, some of his songs may have been classed as run of the mill, but, others have one hell of an impact, (for me anyway).

Listen to September if you can without having it affect the senses, and I have just acquired the HURT video, it brings tears to my eyes to see this great man still doing what he did best.

To me he was and always will be an icon, and everyone else is welcome to their own opinions.

Right, got that off my chest, back to the grindstone.
