The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure.

one of my favorite songs of all times- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rleFAS_B04
He walked the line, for sure.
This one was from the days when he was a pill freak. funny thing about drugs. Name one musician who put out better music AFTER they gave up the drugs?
@Cap’n— Steve Earl.
He wasn’t better after the drugs by accident. If he were here, he’d tell you why.
Ok Mikey. Always liked Steve Earle. Didn’t realize he REALLY went off the deep end.
Another Texas boy by the name of Stevie Ray Vaughn comes to mind. Saw him play when he was loaded and he was too loud and out of control.
Much better when he stopped using.
never mind what I said in #4. I guess I was talking outta my ass.
…now that man played american music…
Finally heard the live San Quentin album last week. The whole album. Blew me away. Sure, we’ve all heard the song San Quentin, but the album, that’s the shit right there. Couldn’t believe it took me so long. That dude was a badass.
Stupid ass Trent Reznor song. But, Cash owned it.
And, then of course, bringing it home for cyclists:
That motherfucker walked a long, hard road for sure.
Can you imagine the gargantuan balls it took to sing ‘San Quentin’ IN San Quentin prison? In front of the warden, guards, & prison administration? I still can’t believe he didn’t start a full-scale riot with that one.
Badass of leviathan proportions.
@ bj…sorry dude. Cash was the MAN, but this song was and will forever be Reznor.
“Hurt” belongs to Cash.
Reznor was a pufter in comparison.
The Man in Black… He articulated the human condition as eloquently as any Pulitzer Prize winner. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and never apologized for it, and that… more than anything else is why we love him.
Trent Rexnor? Had to Google the name. Thought Johnny wrote the song. But nevermind, he owns it now.
