Johnny Cash III.

Johnny Cash     As many singers, also Johnny sang duets with famous singers and met many famous persons in his branch. I can tell you only some of them: June Carter (later became his wife), Bob Dylan, Luis Armstrong, Neil Young, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins etc.

     And how he got his nick “The Man in Black“? It was about year 1970. In that time he had created this image. He started to wear all only in black. Long knee length coat, also in black. In the next year he wrote song „Man in Black“ as explaining this suite.

    I really enjoyed the Luis Armstrong video, but I couldn’t get the others to work. That one was enough though, what a treat! Fantastic post~

    I’m actually surprised at how many of my students want to do Johnny Cash songs, everybody from the blues guys to the metal heads.

    Three chords and the truth (or a good story in Johnny’s case).
