That poster of him flipping the bird didn't do anything for his credibility, either.
THat photo was taken at San Quentin in 1970.
Does it really matter? Whether it was 1955, or a week before his death, it still hurt his credibility. Smashing out the lights at the Ryman didn't help his image, either.
please, say this isnt so! look here if johnny done flipped off someone, and its proved by photograph, i am no longer a johnny cash fan. i will burn all my dozens of dozens of albums and CD's. i cant beleive this. please say it isnt so. yep, this is quite the scandal here you uncovered. its about as worse as murder and rape!
but, let me put on my serious hat, and ask you two boys with the thousands, and thousands of posts. are you for real, or just radio-info board ambassadors who challange, and counter point everything, in an effort to bring conversation, debate and excitement to the readers, and posters?
by the way, ive got that johnny cash poster with his middle finger, and sneer proudly displayed! uh huh, you really think that hurt his credibility huh?
