A while ago I posted about Walk the Line, the superb bio-pic of Johnny Cash. Well worth a watch, even if you think you don’t like Cash’s music. I’ve also posted about ‘The Wanderer’, his stunning song on the U2 album Zooropa.
BBC 4 ran a series of programmes the other night on Cash including an episode from the Johnny Cash Show, Walk the Line and a brilliant biography which ended with this is the video of Cash performing one of his last songs, his version of ‘Hurt’. It seems to sum up his life in a song. A moment of great insight, openness and hurt.
