Bob Darden, writer

I loved this piece about Elvis by Bob Darden, which appears in the Dallas Morning News this weekend.  Elvis was never a big part of my life or musical consciousness; he seemed a peripheral figure in the time and places I was plugged into music. That's largely, though, because I am ignorant of influences. I didn't know when I was hearing echoes of his voice.

Bob refers to a Johnny Cash version of Hurt, which is one of my favorites:

You might enjoy this Johnny Cash album released this spring. His poetry set to music and preformed by many amazing artists.

Bob Darden: the best.
