Live The Life: Johnny Cash


Get the look of the famed country music bad kid.

The gravel-voiced Johnny Cash iconically synthesized country and rock, a dichotomy present in almost all aspects of his life: He was a Biblical scholar who referred to himself as "the biggest sinner of them all"; his onstage persona possessed a bad boy brio, yet maintained a somber undertone; and his canon was both brooding and silly. Cash's appearance, though, had a reliable consistency. While he adhered to a priestly, dark uniform, which garnered him the sobriquet "The Man in Black," hints of outlaw braggadocio--a roughed-up leather jacket, a bolo tie, the rockabilly pompadour -- implied his rebellious nature was never too far off.
