I learned a man’s gotta be a lot tougher than the timber he’s cutting.
Johnny Cash  (via thatkindofwoman)
"Johnny Cash wanted to come to Newport. He was married to June Carter and brought Mother Maybelle Carter to the festival with him. Johnny was a big star, but for Newport he appeared for what every artist got: $50. In addition to June and Mother Maybelle, he brought along two new artists he was interested in: Kris Kristofferson and Cajun fiddler Doug Kershaw. Johnny’s actions personified the respect that so many artists had for what we were doing at Newport in the sixties.” - George Wein

Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns.
