Format: Paperback
Johnny Cash FAQ by C Eric Banister is a 2014 Backbeat books publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by the publisher and Netgalley.

So, what else can we say about Johnny Cash? There was a movie about his life, many books have been written about “The Man in Black” and documentaries and so on. Well, to be honest, if there is one thing I have learned by reading these FAQ books released by Backbeat books, it's that these books dig deep and are for the hardcore, tried and true fans, the ones who have all the music, have seen all the shows and movies , and read all the books. However, if you are not a trivia master, this book is the best place to start if you want to know more about this artist. Once more let me stress this is not a dry biography. There are biographical chapters, but this book isn't laid out that way and does not follow a strict chronological order.
Naturally, we have to have some background on Johnny's life and the author goes through this briefly. The main focus is the on Johnny's musical career which had very humble beginnings. We learn who influenced Johnny and he had very broad taste in music.

“The Tennessee Three”, Johnny's first band, if you will, went through many changes and each member is given space in the book. Some folks stuck with Cash throughout most of his career in on capacity or other.

The Sun Record years gives a brief background of Sun Records and Sam Phillips which many are quite familiar with. More famously known for signing Elvis, Sun Records actually boasted a very successful group of musicians that also included Jerry Lee Lewis. Eventually, Cash and his group signed with Phillips and releases “Hey Porter”/ “Cry, Cry, Cry” and the group was given an advance of $3.30.
