man in black

Today 40 years ago Elvis Presley left this world. We remember him today, and always. Johnny Cash in his autobiography: “ I’ve heard it said that here at the end of the century, we all have our own Elvis, and I can appreciate that idea, even though my Elvis was my friend, flesh and blood in real life. Certainly, though, my Elvis was the Elvis of the ‘50s. He was a kid when I worked with him. He was nineteen years old, and he loved cheeseburgers, girls, and his mother, not necessarily in that order (it was more like his mother, then girls, then cheeseburgers).”

Here’s a nice photo of Johnny Cash in amazement of how nice his hair turned out. What a work of art, a piece of architecture, a model for all those who come afterward. How did he ever have any time to write any songs? All these old timer hair cuts have one thing in common, length. Don’t think that these styles were all night time trainging caps or blowdry styles. They are a good weight of hair and good pomades combined.
