Johnny Cash

I just realized yesterday that Johnny Cash has left us for good. I was on vacation and didn't tune into the news at all. I only found out when watching CNN on sunday night, two days later.

I can only say what millions of people have said before. Johnny Cash is one of the most influential persons in the music business. You can hear his style even in nowadays pop music. His passing away is a sad loss for music in general. I've never been really exposed to his music so far, but I loved his cover of U2's One. And I can't find anybody who isn't moved by his version of Hurt. Even Trent Reznor must be trembling hearing Johnny Cash cover his song.

Anyway, it's a sad loss...
