Johnny Cash dies at Age 71

The legendary singer Johnny Cash died today, after having left hospital on Tuesday morning.

As a kid, he meant nothing to me – Johnny Cash was somebody I associated with “Ring of Fire” and Country music. Lately, through the two albums of American Recordings, I’ve become a big fan of his. I’ve listened to both albums more than any other over the last year. If you haven’t, now is the time.

Yet another of my musical heroes dies before I got a chance to see him in concert. I missed John Lee Hooker, and I’m positive that the next chance I get to see B.B. King or Santana live, it doesn’t matter what the price is, I’ll go.
