Johnny Cash Flips Biz

While much of the March 14 issue of Billboard magazine is filled

with self-congratulatory advertisements in the wake of the recent Grammy

awards, country veteran Johnny Cash took out a full-page ad to

express his dissatisfaction with the industry. Featured alongside John

Marshall's famed photo of an enraged Cash flipping the bird is the

sarcastic announcement that "American Recordings and Johnny Cash would like

to acknowledge the Nashville music establishment and country radio for your

support." The Man in Black's Unchained collection won the Best

Country Album award at last month's Grammy ceremony.
