Love to Johnny

Today would have been Johnny Cash's 81st birthday. And I just spent waaaaaaay too much time watching clips from his prison concerts. I love those the most out of all of the videos of him because he was such a pistol and you can see the true Johnny coming out, I think. He said and did what he wanted and sounded and looked damned good while doing it.

Here's a video from when he first started out. He was a baby faced twenty three years old here.

 Here's to Johnny - loved by many and duplicated by none.

This may encourage me to go put on my dad's copy of Live from Folsom Prison.

In it something is. Now all became clear, many thanks for an explanation.
I apologise, but, in my opinion, you commit an error. Let's discuss. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
Please, keep to the point.
