Johnny Cash

Any 'Man in Black' fans here with me?

I grew up listening to Johnny Cash twang on his guitar, spitting out knee slappin' music as a little kid who spent alot of time in the trailer park where my grand parents lived in east Omaha. Grampa was a pipefitter, a real blue collar guy who worked hard and drank hard. And boy did he love Johnny Cash.

Guess it's in my blood then.

So, what am I up to on this St. Patrick's Day? Sipping a cold beer at home and cranking a few classics like I Walk The Line, Ring of Fire, A Boy Named Sue and I've Been Everywhere.

Did you know this cat recorded some 1,500 songs in his music career?



Wish I could go... http://cashbash2005.com/

Re: Johnny Cash

I learned to appreciate him, but way, way later in his career/my life. Not a huge fan, but do appreciate what he's done for music!!

Oh, wait, I meant this one...

If we fight our way to the center, get to the stage and upload this Slayer CD. Hippies can't stand death metal and will disperse.


Now back on topic. Johnny Cash rules! Ghost Riders in the Sky; Ring of Fire; Oney and zillions more

Re: Johnny Cash

I learned to play guitar listening to him. I had one album by him (Live at San Quentin, I think) and I played that sucker till it was smooth.

Then I discovered Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, the Stones...................... you get the idea.

Re: Johnny Cash

Anybody know what album it was that he did a bunch of modern covers on? I know he did the NIN "Hurt", which rocked by the way, but the other day I heard another cover, something as crazy as covering NIN. Anyone?

Modern covers?? Of who?? Wifey bought a CD of him (like a mini box set) and I will admit I listen to it once in a while. I always did like him and Willie (City of New Orleans is cool) and a few more of the old guys

I shot a man in Reno


Just to watch him die.


Feed me enough beers and I'll sing that at karaoke night.

And then there's this asshole...
