Johnny Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003)

Today marks the anniversary of Johnny Cash’s birthday (he would have been 82). Though I’m not a hardcore fan I can appreciate his contributions to country music and particularly enjoy his song on the following video. According to wikipedia it won a Grammy Award and was directed by Tony Kaye (director of “American History X”) in 2006 and features an interesting mix of famous people who I presume are Johnny Cash fans including (in order of appearance): David Allan Coe (Intro), Iggy Pop, Kanye West, Chris Martin, Kris Kristofferson, Patti Smith, Terrence Howard, Flea, Q-Tip, Adam Levine, Chris Rock, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Sir Peter Blake, Sheryl Crow, Dennis Hopper, Woody Harrelson, Amy Lee, Tommy Lee, The Dixie Chicks, Mick Jones, Sharon Stone, Patricia Arquette, Bono, Shelby Lynne, Anthony Kiedis, Travis Barker, Lisa Marie Presley, Kid Rock, Jay-Z, Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Corinne Bailey Rae, Johnny Depp, Graham Nash (holding photos of Johnny Cash), Brian Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg (brief flash), Rick Rubin, and Owen Wilson. As fun as it may be to spot the celebrities, don’t let it distract from the powerful vocals and lyrics.
