Johnny Cash

Black and white charcoal on brown paper. My version of Cash caricature.

I always love Johnny Cash and his songs.  Love his movie and his music.  I was first introduced to him and his music when I was in a band in my younger years where I played fiddle.  And my favorite one is "Folsom Prison".  Makes me wonder why would somebody like to compose a song about prison story unless he or she was once in it.  Sure enough he once spent some time in the slammer.  And another cool thing about it is when he went back to the same prison, not for another term, but to give a concert.  The guy is truly a legend.
