Jazz fans are always in need of Cash. But calling Carl Perkins a slicker who went city slips the facts; he was more rural than John R. and just as prone to substance abuse, but juicing (I reckon) rather than speed. Cash carried him along as a key member of the tours for many years, 'cause they were plain old country boys and good buds. Too bad the Man in Black, for all his well-earned success, never did get to leave off the dark clothes, and Carl never quite reached the level of respect he deserved; that's the song called "Fortune, Misfortune, and Fate" Johnny never wrote.

One of Louis Armstrong's last TV appearances (maybe THE last) was on "The Johnny Cash Show," October 28, 1970.

and check out their wonderful duet on "Blue Yodel No. 9," originally done by Armstrong and Jimmie Rodgers in 1930.
