He was one of my personal heroes; his music has helped me get through some very hard times. I'm at a loss for words right now.

In heaven, they are listening to the latest Johnny Cash.

that cover of 'hurt' he did was a very fine thing, and showed an artist with a broad range. something worth admiring, that.

If you liked "Hurt", I'd highly recommend his covers of Soundgarden's "Rusty Cage" and Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus", as well.

His rendition of "Hurt" was quite powerful, but Nine Inch Nails gives me the heebeejeebes. He did good with the material, but I don't like to be that upset/disturbed by a song. I'm kind of wussy for someone my age in that.
Learned alot about him recently, mostly I think I heard him as a kid with my parents playing his stuff.

bird on a wire is good.
also, best EVAR just about, find "Ghost Riders in the Sky", the live version he did with Willie Nelson.
gives me chills.

i love poetry, and i've learned as much about how to turn a phrase from it than i have from all the books and stories i've read. and if good lyrics aren't poetry, then i'm not a writer.
