Johnny Cash had been my first thought on 12 but it didn't really sound like him. I don't know who it does sound like though.

No, Johnny Cash is more tuneful! lol

Feel free to ask questions that can be answered with a "yes" or a "no"

To get you started:
Is he still living? - No

Afraid not, michele

If you were to ask me "Is this person known as a singer", I would say "no"

Have a think about my advice to Marian... think
