One of my biggest concert going regrets was skipping Johnny Cash’s gig at Toronto’s Massey Hall in 1996, in support of his Unchained album. I figured he’d be back. I was wrong. Not long after the gig, Johnny took ill and stopped touring, eventually passing away in 2003. One legend I never had the chance to see. But I love the Man In Black. Today would have been his 80th birthday. Let’s take a moment to remember just how kickass he was, is and always will be.
