Johnny Cash February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003
The Man in Black is gone. After a career that spanned nearly 50 years and countless genres and subjects, one of the greatest has moved on. He lived a hard life, some of it his own fault, some of it not. But through it all he spoke of doing the best you could, regretting your mistakes, but never wallowing in them, never failing to learn from them and never blaming someone else. He worked with Bob Dylan, U2 and even covered Nine Inch Nails. Even if you don't care for the style, the brilliance cannot be denied. He didn't preach, he just told a story, in every song. You were left to yourself to decide the moral. Listen to some Johnny Cash today and remember that we're all human and need, and can give love no matter how hard life gets.
Also, I put a link at the end of yesterday's posting. I've changed it. I like this one better.
