You know how much this breaks my heart.
He’s back with June now, though.

I’d like to send Rick Rubin to his grave, now, for shaming Johnny’s legacy.

Wholeheartedly agree with the Rubin comment. Fuckin’ parasite.

All day long we’ve been listening to different eras from Johnny’s career…the latest album sounds so tired and out of breath. Sad stuff.

I posted this on Friendster earlier today. A lot of people who check in here aren’t my friendster pals, so I’ll use this forum to drop my 2 cents, as well. Sorry.
As I’m sure you have heard, Johnny Cash passed away late
last night. Anyone who knows me recognizes how
important Johnny Cash’s music, his image, and his persona
are to me. I am deeply saddened.

In spite of the “new” fabricated Johnny Cash created by Dr.
Rick Rubinstein in his labratory of horrors, I wish for
everyone to not remember Johnny Cash as a trembling,
weak old man being coerced into Nine Inch Nails and U2
covers. I want the world to remember Johnny as the fixture
of American Life that he was and is. I want the world to
remember that Johnny was a cutting-edge, unique, brave
musician and celebrity figure who defined what it is to go
against the grain and come out on top. Johnny defied the
Country Music establishment; he stood up for the unjustly
incarcerated; he celebrated the history of Native
Americans and reminded america of its murderous legacy;
he verbally opposed the Viet Nam war and embraced
“hippies” like Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Johnny defeated
relentless addiction and found true, undying love.

There are a thousand shining examples of what has made
Johnny Cash a legend in his own time. You could fill a Rock
Island Line train car with his hit singles. You can find him
on the juke box of every dirty beer hall and pool room in
every town in America. He hosted his own television variety
show, and has played roles on tv and in films. But what is
most important about Cash is that he was a pioneer, a
rebel, a trail-blazer — The Man In Black.

Rest your souls, Johnny and June.

there is one rubin rekkid thats good tho, in my opinion,
Unchained. c’mon guys admit it, theres a few good cuts on there and a little backup band sounds good.

I do think he’s a parasite tho and all the cover shit is a load.

also heard on the radio yesterday that Merle Haggard was at folsom (incarcerated) when johnny played that show and it inspired him to be a musician and sing about the everyday toils as johnny did
