Music legend Johnny Cash dead at 71

The ‘Man in Black’ Johnny Cash has died at the age of 71 due to complications from diabetes at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Perhaps the most widely recognized voice in country music, Cash recorded more than 1,500 songs. His career spanned more than four decades with trademark hits like ‘A Boy Named Sue,’ ‘Folsom Prison Blues,’ ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘I Walk the Line.’”

Editor’s note: It was only two weeks ago that I had downloaded several Johnny Cash albums from the iTunes Music Store. Rest in peace Johnny Cash, you’ll be missed.

And when I got home and heard the news my heart skipped a beat… RIP JC
