Thank you, Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash
When asked if he had a message for the Governor of Fulsom Prison this was Johnny Cash's reply

Johnny Cash, the original punk star, would have been 78 today. 

He was born on February 26th 1932 and died on September 12th 2008 just four months after his wife June Carter Cash.

His musical legacy spans over 50 years and he is held in great affection by many the world over for his music but also for his empathy and affinity with the common man. 

Cash believed himself to have some Irish roots but discovered that he was, in fact, of Scottish royal descent – the Cash family tree can be traced back to 11th century Fife.

Anyway, this is one of my favourite JC tracks – his wonderful cover of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus.  Enjoy.
