Johnny cash died this morning in Nashville. May he rest in peace.


When I was just a baby
My Mama told me, Son
Always be a good boy
Don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him die . . .


Don't take your guns to town, Son
Leave yours guns at home, Bill
Don't take your guns to town.


My name is Sue.
How do you do.
Now you gonna die!
***
I got all shook up
And threw down my gun.
I called him a pop
And he called me a son.
We went away with a different point of view.



Those of THR in Nashville, please pass along my honor for this legend and my sympathy to his family.


Charles Bronson, Warren Zevon, Johnny Cash, and John Ritter (son of Tex Ritter) all within about 10 days . . . :(

Please refresh my memory - didn't Cash have a criminal record ? didn't he own guns ? was he pardoned by the governor ?

Johnny Cash was an anti.

I don't remember ever hearing him speak on guns, and I just finished his autobiography. He did turn back to the Lord after years of hell-raising, so its possible he may have said some turn-the-other-cheek stuff.

Even if he did, he's still a hero to me. RIP.

Emmy Lou Harris and Joan Osborne Performing at Event

New York, NY (April 16, 2002) -- Pax, the largest non-political organization dedication to ending the gun violence crisis in America, will hold its second annual benefit gala and awards on Monday April 29, 2002 at 6:30 p.m. at Cipriani, 110 East 42nd Street. The event will honor Sen. Jon Corzine (D-NJ), Dominick Dunne, Russell Simmons and is chaired by Tom Cohen, Griffin Dunne and Martin Puris.

The evening's entertainment will be provided by grammy winner Emmy Lou Harris and by Joan Osborne. Mandy Patinkin will emcee.

The host committee includes: Johnny Cash; Roseanne Cash; Richard Gere; Branford Marsalis; Julianne Moore; Mandy Patinkin; Rob Reiner, Carly Simon, Kate Spade and Susan Sarandon.

Pax will unveil its new public service announcements for its new groundbreaking national campaign Speak-Up, which will help studens report threats of weapon-related violence at school. Speak-Up will feature the first ever toll free national hotline for students to anonymously report threats of weapons-related violence at their school (1-866-speak-up).

Pax's other highly successful campaign is ASK (Asking Saves Kids), which urges parents to ask their neighbors if they have a gun in the home before sending their children over to play. Over 40 percent of homes with children have guns -- many of those are kept unlocked and loaded.

What: Pax 2002 Benefit Gala and Awards
When: Monday, April 29, 2002, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Cipriani, 110 East 42nd Street

OK. Yes He was an anti and a somewhat vocal one that was "used" by the evildoers of our society.

Still . . . gotta love those songs (and I am not a county music fan!).

Not a big fan of "Country" music, but I do own a few Johnny Cash albums...yes the old "pancake black plastic" thingys, that you played on a "turn table" or "record changer".

which urges parents to ask their neighbors if they have a gun in the home before sending their children over to play.

I have to say that I agree with this one ... kids shouldn't be in a home where the parents are not armed and able to defend then. ;)


There will never be another Johnny Cash - in a world of sound-alike singers he will be missed.

I don't give a damn if he was "an anti". Some things transcend politics.

Rest in peace, Man in Black.

June Cash dead at 73. (http://countrymusic.about.com/library/bljunecartercashobit.htm)

Yeah, it seems he was an anti, which is (was) too bad, but damn, he made some of my favorite music. The music industry surely won't be the same.

Folsom Prison Blues
Wanted Man
Ring of Fire
One Piece At A Time
Boy Named Sue
Ragged Old Flag
I Walk The Line...

Now you can't tell me that's some good music. Gun stance aside, I'm gonna miss ya, Johnny. :(

She died back in April or May.

Waylon's gone, Johnny's gone. Pay attention to Willie while he's still around.

But don't you see? He was an anti! That means that everything he ever did or said was without value! He was a radical leftist! He was a sheeple. He wanted to kill you! I know these things are true about antis because I read them right here on this board and also at TFL.
