The man in black

"Hello I am Johnny Cash"

I spent most of my Saturday listening to Johnny Cash.

One of the most talented musicians to have ever walked this planet.
Be it his trademark, train like rhythm, be it his deep voice. One is spellbound the moment the head phones are on!

If you have not yet heard Mr Cash play, then I would recommend the following numbers for starters

I walk the line
Ring of fire
Long black veil
Folsom prison blues
Heart of Gold
Boy named Sue
I've been everywhere


And the icing on the cake for me was this wonderful video having the legendary Roger Miller improvising with Johnny cash on "King of the Road"

Ahem. Long Black Veil.... Rings a bell somehow. (Though I must admit, I prefer DMB's cover to Cash's original.)
Lurrrve Johnny Cash. Really like how Joaquin Phoenix played him in the movie too.
I'd say 'Ring of Fire' is my favourite. Vaav, what a baritone the man had on him!
