33. What a marvelous man and musician he was
His humanity and honesty were apparent in everything he did. He was the very heart and soul of the American folk music we call Country today. Never a formula pop artist, his music always expressed his personal joy, sorrow and view of social injustice.

For a long time he will be remembered and has left a legacy to all the young musicians who were influenced by him. We won't see his like again.

I bought "The Man Comes Around" a few months ago, his last album. The album is extraordinary in the choice of songs by others, as well as his original compositions. Cash never sat on his laurels, whether he was writing about the Apocalypse, or singing Danny Boy or Hurt from Nine Inch Nails he made everything he did fresh and original and true.
