    Today Johnny Cash went to be with his wife June Carter-Cash who passed away last May.

    Yeah, tragic news. But it's also cause of himself for a bit. He had diabetes and he drank pretty much. As we all know, these 2 don't mix well... Still a great loss for the world.

    If you haven't seen it, I recommend downloading the video "Hurt" by Johnny Cash. I'm not sure when it was recorded, but it's got this really eery "goodbye" quality to it. A lot of shots of him in his old age, and shots of his wife (i think). In light of his passing, it's a pretty intense video to watch.

    "Hurt" is a Nine Inch Nails song that Cash covered. All the stuff Cash had recorded with Rick Ruben in the past few years is good stuff. It is well worth checking out. I think Johnny would have stuck around if his wife June, had lived (that is her in the video). I think he died of a broken heart more than anything else. We lost Sam Phillips this last month also. Tom Dowd and Jeep Hartned (sp?) (founder of MCI) passed earlier this year. It's been a bad year for the ledgends and the pioneers. I will miss Johnny Cash's music. "Ring of Fire" and "Big River" have both been favorites of mine for a long time. Kurt
