The only entertainer besides Elvis Presley to be inducted into both the Country Music and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, Johnny Cash touched the lives of millions around the world with his distinctive style and classic songs that mirror the human condition. In I Still Miss Someone, more than forty people offer their remembrances of the Man in Black and provide an insider's view of the heart and soul of the friend they knew simply as John. Featuring contributions from a broad spectrum of persons from all eras of Cash's life--including his children, John Carter Cash; Kathy Tittle; Cindy Cash; and Tara Cash Schwoebel; grandson Dustin Tittle, siblings Tommy Cash and Joanne Cash Yates; early bandmate W. S. Holland; country music icons Merle Kilgore, Johnny Western, and Cowboy"" Jack Clement--I Still Miss Someone is a stirring tribute by those whose relationship with Johnny Cash was both deep and lasting. Hundreds of 150 illuminating photos--many never before published--and a bevy of Johnny's handwritten notes, backstage passes, and other personal paraphernalia make this a one-of-a-kind tribute book that will appeal to everyone. The roster of those sharing their recollections of Cash include his longtime personal agent Lou Robin; Larry Murray, who wrote for Cash's ABC television shows and his CBS Christmas specials; devoted musicians Bob Wootton, Jack Hale Jr., and Dave Roe, who spent many years on the road with Cash; plus secretaries, publicists, farm hands, and many others, each of whom adds vibrant color and texture to the life portrait of their departed friend Johnny Cash.""
