Johnny Cash

The man in black

di Mauro Vecchio

Il mefistofelico viandante dello spirito della nazione americana. L’uomo solitario che faceva abbeverare i delinquenti di Folsom alla fonte del country-blues. Un "outlaw" al servizio del Signore. Viaggio nella leggenda di Johnny Cash: dagli esordi al declino, fino alla resurrezione artistica degli ultimi anni di vita, quando anche una nuova generazione di artisti lo ha eletto a suo "nume"
