While I have heard a lot of his music (often while visiting my parents), I knew next to nothing about the man. This book gives a good bit of in-sight into his life, his way of thinking, his music, and his faith. Johnny Cash was a very deep man and I am amazed at the amount of inspirational material he left for his son to use in putting together this tribute. The book contains copies of hand written notes, reproductions of important documents, and many personal photos. Just a note of caution as a lot of the included material are odd sized compared to the standard pages and not all are attached, so so care should taken when going through it (small children might be tempted to remove some of the smaller notes). All of this is great material is tied together by a son's detailed accounts and recollection of his larger than life father.
This is a solid hit for fans and is even interesting reading for those with a casual interest in "The Man In Black".
This book, written by Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash (J.C.C.), is a personal look at Johnny Cash's life and what inspired him to live the life he chose. Using many unpublished photographs and the above mentioned ephemera, J.C.C. paints a portrait of a man who was both a well known recording artist, and a father/family man. Filled with first person writing, the style brings out a different side of Cash-a man concerned with family, life values, and the creative spirit.
Chapters like "Beginnings and Foundations", "Faith & Philosophy", "Married In A Fever", "From Heart To Pen", and others, construct a good picture of Cash as both a family man and an artist.Read more ›
John Carter Cash, is the only child born of the marriage of two music legends: Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash. The love he had for his parents is self-evident in this book, and his honesty about his feelings for his father are manifested on every page of this "Cash-Carter Family" based volume.
Pulling no punches, you are immersed into the entire world of this musical giant that became known as "The Man In Black". From his early beginnings in Arkansas to his world travels, you follow his path no matter where it leads. His song writing, his poetry, his paintings, his photography, his playful/humorous side, his addictions, his ailments, his friends...if it was a part of the life of Johnny Cash, you will read about it within these pages.
Most of all you will learn about his steadfast, deep abiding faith in God, his loyalty to his friends...and the compassion he had for those less fortunate souls, no matter where in the world he traveled.
Through the years his friends included many whose names you know: the Reverend Billy Graham, Elvis, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Horton, Kris Kristofferson, "Cowboy" Jack Clement...and many more too numerous to mention.Read more ›
