Salute To The Man In Black

Mon Feb 26, 2007 11:10 pm

It would have been Johnny Cash's 75th Birthday today. Truly one of the greatest Country / Rock-a-Billy artists and one of the few of that genre who even gets attention by the not so America friendly media in Germany.

Johnny Cash is an American Icon, a legend who will live on forever on the hearts of his fans around the world.

I'm not really a country/ western fan, but he the was the exception I like to listen to.
When he made the crossover jump to rock charts with a "A Boy Name Sue" and "I walk
The Line" is when I got interested.

Cool dude.RIP

Absolutely.

Where is that violin when I need it the most...?  Yeah sure

a) The media are plenty "America-friendly" to the point of obsession in some respects.

b) Country music is just a very tiny niche in Germany for obvious reasons, so he wasn't quite as popular over here, hence the lower profile of news regarding him.

Some things actually aren't due to a huge conspiracy, you know...!

Rock and Roll would be nothing today if it wasn't for the likes of Johnny Cash and the others of his time (Willie, Waylon, Hank Williams, Sr.) that paved the way.

The country "stars" of today aren't even worthy of holding his jock.

I think I'll listen to Live at Folsom Prison on the drive home today.

Well that goes without saying. David Hasselhoff doesn't do much country.  biggrin

there are a few around that are still worth listening to.

Johnny and Waylon, half of the Highwaymen are dead, Willie is still on the road and I look forward to Kris Kristofferson March 11 in Hamburg. Have the tickets since November and it's sold out.

But right now it's "American V - a Hundred Highways on the CD player.

I had thought he was back in the US by now since his application for asylum in Germany had been declined...?
