From the Publisher
LIFE partners with Sony Music Entertainment and its vast archive of
photography to launch a new series of special books: LIFE Unseen,
surprising looks at some of our most legendary stars. We kick off
the series with Johnny Cash, who passed away 10 years ago, but it
seems like he has never left us.
There have been iconic American performers whose lives seemed even
larger than their stage personas. Then there was Johnny Cash,
unique and-yes-transcendent. He is seen as a country singer, but he
is also in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Gospel Hall of Fame.
Coming out of Arkansas, rebellious and an early adherent of
rockabilly (he was part of Sun Studios'' Million Dollar Quartet,
along with Elvis, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis), he found his
audience. Cash was also a TV star and he formed supergroups with
other top recording artists. Movies were made about the Man in
Black, and he would have been calcified as a "legend" had he not
been so genuine.
LIFE was at its apex when Cash "arrived," and this special volume
includes that great photography, interviews with Cash and his
family-as well as his soul mate, June Carter Cash, in a special
section-and, of course, the never-before-seen imagery.
Johnny Cash lives on through his eternal music and personal
story-and through this tribute that presents, perhaps even reveals,
the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, as you''ve never seen him.
