Johnny Cash dead?
 
Just heard on my local news that Johnny Cash died, the cause being complications from diabetes. Haven't found anything online yet, though.

Very sad week, with Warren Zevon, John Ritter, and now, possibly, Johnny Cash as well.

And there's our "three."

Kind of spooky...

Josh-da-man 09-12-03 06:06 AM

Yes, it is true. There's a headline on CNN.com.

The Associated Press

Johnny Cash, a towering figure in American music spanning country, rock and folk and known worldwide as "The Man in Black," has died, according to hospital officials in Nashville, Tenn. He was 71.

"Johnny died due to complications from diabetes, which resulted in respiratory failure," said Cash's manager, Lou Robin, in a press release issued by Baptist Hospital in Nashville.

The release said Cash died at the hospital at 1 a.m. EDT. He was released from Baptist on Wednesday where he had spent two weeks being treated for an unspecified stomach ailment.

"I hope that friends and fans of Johnny will pray for the Cash family to find comfort during this very difficult time," Robin said

Yup, they just broadcast in on CNN as well. That is really sad. I am going to miss JR Cash, as I was a huge fan of his, basically as long as I have been listening to music.

I am glad that his go with Rick Rubin got him back into the mainstream somewhat, with more people discovering what a great talent he was.

I cant believe 2 John's have passed away. :(

Man oh man,

Just heard the news. Although I've been dreading this for some time after his wife died, hearing the news sure brings a tear to my eye.

:( damn, what a morning I get up and read about John Ritter and Johnny Cash

I think we should just get rid of the month of September all together. Too much bad stuff is happening.

One of the most important musicans of the 20th and 21st centuries. At least he gets to be reunited with his wife now.

Me too. His health has been failing for some time now, and her passing had to be hard on him. Some of my earliest music memories are of Johnny Cash playing on the 8-track as I rode in the car with my Dad. So this is almost like an old friend passing. :(

:( He'll be missed by fans of music... period. What a towering figure he was. I love country music today thanks in large part because of this man. In a world full of country crap, he was the real deal. More than the real deal.

RIP

I know I will certainly miss him. My father gave me a couple of his records a while back and I became a fan almost immediately. Truly a sad, sad day. :(

Same here. Truly a sad loss. :(

His songs meant a lot to me... sad day.

Oh, man. :( RIP, MIB. There's a better home awaiting in the sky, Lord, in the sky.

Couldn't have said it better myself. He was a great man and will be missed by his millions of fans.

Very sad to lose the Man in Black and Miss June.

theedge 09-12-03 08:50 AM

:down: So sad.. too bad he didn't make it to the MTV Video awards to get an award and perform for the last time.

Grew up with Johnny Cash playing in the background, my father always used to listen to him...

Penny Lane 09-12-03 08:50 AM

:( This is an awful thing to wake up to. R.I.P. Johnny.

LurkerDan 09-12-03 09:00 AM

I didn't grow up listening to him, but he has become possibly my favorite musician. the breadth of his career is unparalleled.

I don't want to go to work now... :( :( :(

Too great legends down. One for comedy and one for music. How very sad for us today. RIP Gentlemen. You will be missed.

Just reminds me of a poem I once read. It was supposedly written for Ronnie Van Zandt from Skynard, I believe. It went something like:

A brief candle both ends burning
And endless mile, a bus wheel turning
A handshake and a sip of wine
A friend to share the lonesome times
So say it loud and let it ring
That we're all part of everything
The present, future and the past
Fly on proud bird, you're free at last.

Kromax 09-12-03 09:06 AM

JC = the original MIB. RIP.

Dr. DVD 09-12-03 09:08 AM

Sad indeed. :(

milo bloom 09-12-03 09:50 AM

Never a huge fan, but always enjoyed what I did hear. I did think Hurt was one of the most powerful pieces of music I've ever heard (and seen).

He really should have swept the MTV VMAs.

Rogue588 09-12-03 11:08 AM

Ya know, they had something on an MTV news brief last nite. Kurt was doing the reporting so I was like "oh no, Kurt's reporting. Johnny must've died." They were simply reporting that he was released from the hospital..

Guess things changed...

RIP
