"I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town, I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime, But is there because he's a victim of the times." — Johnny Cash
“Sometimes I am two people. Johnny is the nice one. Cash causes all the trouble. They fight.” -Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash - 'He’s a timeless presence. From the beginning of rock & roll, there’s always been this dark figure who never really fit. He’s still the quintessential outsider. In the hip-hop world you see all these bad-boy artists who are juggling being on MTV and running from the law. John was the originator of that.' - Rick Rubin.
