Subject: RE: Obit: Johnny Cash passes
In June of 1968, I was in the Ryman Auditorium when he did an unannounced walk-on on the Grand Ole Opry. Utter chaos broke out as almost the whole main floor rushed the stage. Many flahsbulbs were going off. Tonight, I will be looking at my snap-shots of that most memorable event, reliving the awe of being 18 years old and in the precense of a legend, even back then.
