Watch Chris Cornell Record Johnny Cash’s Unfinished Music In New Video


Chris Cornell will appear on a new album that sets the poems of Johnny Cash to music, Johnny Cash: Forever Words. Cash’s son John Carter Cash helped put together the album.

    Oh, this is awesome! I can’t wait to hear all of these new songs (especially Chris’). One of my all time favorite song covers is Johnny’s version of Rusty Cage, and I know Chris really admired Johnny, so this must’ve been a special project for him. 🙂

    Why do you always have to have a pic of the artist flipping off?

    • Olga Stewart

      That is probably one of the best known photos of Johnny.

      So they keep using it from time to time

      But yes, they could be using another photo of him

        I’m not offended or anything. It is just that I notice pics of Courtney Love, Cobain, MM, Francis Bean ect….it’s always a middle finger up

  • Olga Stewart

    I do want to get this album not only because Chris is singing on it but also because Johnny was one of my late dad’s singers.

    And also because Johnny was a damn good musician.
