Happy Birthday Johnny Cash (1932-2007)

I'm constantly baffled by the amazing work that the late Johnny Cash produced with Rick Rubin. The music is stripped down, bare, raw, emotional, naked expressionism recorded with minimal technology. Today, on his 78th birthday, the sixth and final installment of the American Recordings was released: American Recordings VI: Ain't No Grave. has an interview with Johnny Cash and Rick Rubin that Terry Gross did in 1997 accessible here (hat tip to Phawker's continuous NPR coverage "NPR for the deaf, we hear it even when you can't").

More important than his music is the awesomeness of his hair in those two pictures. Get me that hair stat!
