From his legendary 50s Sun recordings to his classic 'American' albums of the late 90s, Johnny Cash has always been the country voice of rock. This is his amazing story - Stephen Miller's vivid account of the life and times of a man who started out with stablemates Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins but who would later become a loyal musical friend of Bob Dylan, Nick Lower, Willie Nelson and Elvis Costello. Once on the point of death from drug addition, Cash turned his life around and for 50 years went on to participate in the rock music that grew out of these original sun recording studio sessions. Here are all the anecdotes behind the rowdy days, the prison albums, the relationships and the music.
