Actually I agree somewhat about the Rick Rubin stuff. There were some jewels there, but, especially in the later volumes, there was lots of snooze. (One of the worst things he ever recorded was "Bridge Over Troubled Water" with Fiona Apple. Barf!)
And I liked his original recording of the old murder ballad "Deliah" back in the 60s a lot more than the unplugged 90s version with the Kate Moss video.
Roger was God.
That was Kate Moss Johnny buried ? Gotta love it. Johnny recorded "Deliah's Gone" three times.I HAVE AN ALBUM WITH ONE OF THE EARLIER VERSIONS...The lyrics are not as extreme. i ADMIT , i LOVE THOSE AMERICAN RECORDS , NOT SO MUCH THE ONE WITH tom petty...It's hard for me to listen to the last couple , because the man was dying. But , when I'm in the mood , I will. I saw Johnny when "Cash" had just come out , and it was really cool to hear him do some of those songs , solo. My Brother and Sister-in-Law and I SAT WITH AN 80 year old lady who'd been going to see Johnny since the 60's , which was SO cool. She said " I have'nt heard the new album yet , but I hear it's so personal". That sums it up .After the show Johnny literally walked thru the crowded lobby and into the street , no entourage , just walked through the people , because he knew he could get respect , and not be crowded. He got into a cab , not a limo , and off he party went.
