Johnny Cash

"Locusts and honey... not since John the Baptist has there been a voice like that crying in the wilderness... Every man knows he is a sissy compared to Johnny Cash." - Bono from U2
Today would have been Johnny Cash's 80th birthday. In his honor here's a few links to all-things Johnny Cash.
Alabama 3 singing their very underrated Hello I'm Johnny Cash
Norah Jones plays Johnny Cash at the Webbys
The story of A Boy Named Sue which was written by Shel Sliverstein (not some random convict)
One of the most iconic photos in Rock and Roll history
The Johnny Cash Project - the video used at Norah Jones performance at the Webbys but with Johnny Cash singing Ain't No Grave
And of course - what I consider the greatest cover song ever - Johnny Cash's version of Hurt.
