Johnny Cash - 1932 - 2003



Johnny Cash died today and that's a pretty sad thing. What a musical legacy he has left us with and we're all the richer for it.

I was quite touched by his last video Hurt, a Nine Inch Nails cover. Truly stunning.

This message on Johnny Cash Music:

THE FAMILY OF JOHNNY CASH, IN THIS SAD HOUR, IS GREATLY COMFORTED BY THE OUTPOURING OF LOVE AND RESPECT FOR HIS REMARKABLE LIFE. WE TAKE SOLACE IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT HE IS AGAIN REUNITED WITH HIS DEAREST COMPANION, JUNE. OUR LIVES, AND INDEED THE ENTIRE PLANET, WILL FOREVER FEEL THE EMPTINESS OF HIS LOSS, BUT HIS MUSIC AND THE GREATNESS OF HIS SPIRIT WILL ENDURE.

Lots on the web today in tribute of Johnny. Here's a nice roundup from Blogcritics.org: Johnny Cash, Legendary Man In Black, Dies

May he rest in peace with June.
