Well this isn't really rock and roll at all. I have a difficulty with country music, namely the deeply held belief that it is mostly maudlin dross. But to every rule there is at least one exception. And with country music, the exception is Johnny Cash. I love the guy to bits so here's a Johnny Cash double header.
The first clip is our man performing 'San Quentin' in - um - San Quentin. It's the most outrageous piece of playing to the gallery ever seen. Cash is obviously having the most wonderful time winding up the prison authorities and giving the cons a few brief moments of exquisite revenge. He was very popular with convicts; they could identify with him. 'He's just like us :D' Watch the cons as they stamp and clap and cheer. Just for a few minutes, this is their time.
The second clip is 'God's gonna cut you down'. Only Johnny Cash could carry off a song like that without inducing a cringe. And does he ever carry it off! There are lots of well-known faces in the clip. See how many you can name and let's have a better performance than last time please!
Maybe next time a bit of yer reggae...
