    Me and my best buddy hugged and cried when he died. Its impossible to find anyone that real in contemporary pop music.

    I was astonished on the day that he died... all of the headlines were about John Ritter, and it just went on for days. Who the hell was John Ritter.? Not even remotely in the same class.

    One of the streets near my house is named Jackson, and every. single. time. I go past it I think about Johnny and June Carter Cash:

    calibro saidi liked him more before he become all jesusy


    He was always like that, to some degree. To his credit, though, his jesusy stuff also had a pretty strong social justice angle (cf. "Man in Black").

    The live records from Folsom Prison and San Quentin are essential, imho.

    Johnny cash is awesome.

    You r not alone as a gay loving cash hehe. Also I agree religion was always a big influence on his music, but is that a bad thing? He was very sincere and showed his faith in a beautiful way. I'm Jewish and I have no problem relating to how strongly he can sing about Jesus, religion and god.

    His early work was great but I really like his later work with produce rick rubin (who produced groups from the beasty boys, to the chili peppers, to system of a down)


    I really like the song country boy. It's def not intended as a "gay" song, but just makes me think of sexy southern boys in boots, a cowboy hat, jeans (no shirt) with a piece of straw sticking out of their mouth.

    Below is the more modern version from the 90s of country boy.

    There was a tribute to Johnny Cash a little while ago, where some other artists covered songs by him.

    Amy Lee from Evanescence did I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry and It's very well done!

    Love the old stuff: "Ring of Fire", "I Walk the Line", "Boy Named Sue".

    He never had much of a voice, but there was something so unique about it.
