Johnny Cash was an American Music icon known to the world as the Man in Black. His voice was surely one of the most recognizable in music history. He had all the style and rebelliousness of his rock`n' roll contemporaries, although he never quite sounded like a rocker, he was never what Nashville fully considered to be country. His deep, resonant baritone voice and spare, percussive guitar playing made him incredibly effective at conveying the plight of the common man.
