Blank on Blank is back with another animated video. This one animates a long lost interview with the great Johnny Cash. Interviewed by Barney Hoskyns back in 1996, Cash talked about music as a religious calling. Playing music was akin to preaching the gospel, and he knew he’d continue making music until his final days. Should we be surprised then, that seven years later, Cash completed more than 60 songs during the last four months of his life? He died with his boots on indeed.
Below we’ve highlighted for you some great Johnny Cash material from our archive.
