My music Idol

Johnny Cash: The Life
Johnny Cash: The Life

By: Robert Hilburn

Genre:  Biography

Pages: 688

Published: 2013

Read: June

3.5 out of 5

I love Johnny Cash. He is definitely one of  my music idols. However, this biography was a little too much detail and redundant; not really the author's fault there was just a period of Johnny's life that not much exciting happened. He had some hits, some flops, some drug related relapses but I felt reading about each and every one was extremely boring...for this particular period of his life I wish I read the cliff note version.  I learned a lot I didn't know with two of the most profound aspects being his strong friendship with Bob Dylan and some songs I never heard.  I also could not believe how determined he was too continue to record and perform so late in his life when his health was deteriorating so quickly.  A huge Johnny fan and avid reader would probably enjoy this book, otherwise I would recommend a shorter biography.
