The King in Black

The more I listen to him, the more I am a fan of Johnny Cash, the ‘King in Black’.
In his younger years he competed with Elvis for the hearts of the girls. Later he became a living legend for millions of music lovers in the world.

Now, I was surprised to hear a number of people whom I talked to about Johnny Cash say that he was not a very good singer. I think that this old video and many others clearly demonstrate his singing abilities. At age 70 of course the voice becomes less strong and less sure. That is a natural phenomenon.

Anotehr nice element in this video is the typical electric guitar work by Luther Perkins. In the country scene this sound made their music very distinctive.

Life Lessons

I Love this great video by Tim Minchin.

Discovering Golden Music: Emmylou Harris

What a lovely, strong voide. She can control volume and softness so well. A really touching live performance. I have to see if I can learn to play some songs of her.
