Style Icon: Johnny Cash


Mr Cash, what a man he has the power to make me dance and cry. Not only that he was such a cool looking guy, that craggy beautiful face, the black suits, he inspires me in so many ways. Any time I don my black suit I always think of him

  1. Agreed, agreed!!! He was so wonderful, though I take more style cues from June ;) My great-uncle Cowboy Jack Clement was one of Johnny's best friends and producers; there's a documentary out about his home movies featuring Johnny that's quite adorable.

  2. He did have amazing style. I think Jack White takes a lot of his style cues from Mr. Cash.

  6. Johnny was so incredible. I made it halfway through his autobiography and didn't finish because I had to return the book. But he was such a fascinating and talented man.

    His last stuff he came out with was so good too. The cover song and the video he did for Hurt was so beautiful and haunting and heartbreaking.

    1. I have read his book it was a great insight into him and his life. Yeah the older stuff is heart wrenching, the video to Hurt can make me cry in an instant.
