[Bob Dylan]…the greatest writer of our times
~Johnny Cash (introducing “Wanted Man” on the album “At San Quentin”)
..Johnny was and is the North Star; you could guide your ship by him – the greatest of the greats then and now. I first met him in ‘62 or ‘63 and saw him a lot in those years. Not so much recently, but in some kind of way he was with me more than people I see every day.
~Bob Dylan (Statement on Johnny Cash – Sept 2003)
