Johnny Cash

Steve Turner, Unpublished, written for Q, 1988

Who do people think Johnny Cash is? "A conservative country singer who lives down in the South somewhere," according to the Man in Black himself, who’s none too pleased with the impression. "The misconception is that I’m regional and they might even sometimes imply that I’m a redneck and, heaven forbid, a bigot. But I’ve been everywhere, and I’ve seen almost everything."
