Johnny Cash On First Meeting Michael
I came across my book on my 3rd favorite artist - Johnny Cash. I had forgotten all about this little story and wanted to share it with you all. Its taken from an unpublished interview from 1988. Enjoy!
Do you still want to meet other artists?
JC: I sure do. I get a kick out of meeting an artist I admire. I had always wanted to meet Michael Jackson. And I did meet him. June and I had recorded a song called "Jackson," and there's a line in the song that says, "We got married in a fever/ Hotter than a pepper sprout." I walked up and said, "Hi, Michael. I'm Johnny Cash," and he said, "Johnny Cash! Hotter than a pepper sprout!"
