Starting today, I will post a talented musician’s song performed by another talented musician.* This will be posted at a minimum every day until the end of this month.
First on the list is the great Johnny Cash with his depressingly powerful rendition of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails.
I contend that, while his live recording of At Folsom Prison powerfully resonated within the Baby Boomer fan-base, American IV: The Man Comes Around did the same with his Gen X crowd. Either way, the original Man in Black is one of the few greats whose audience transcends generations.
