12. What is Johnny Cash's common nickname?
From Quiz Johnny Cash
Answer: The Man in Black
He and his band wore black because it was their only matching color they had in their outfits. But a song of his, "Man in Black", explained better why black was his color. Some lyrics tell a good reason: "I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,/Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,/I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,/" and "I wear it for the sick and lonely old,/For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,/
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,/
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men."
He since became known as the man in black, both on and off stage.
