I spoke to Clive John who performs as Johnny Cash in the show and asked him, various questions, such as –
Why Johnny Cash?
What is it about him or his music that appeals to you?
Do you feel a sense of responsibility to his legacy in the way you perform as him and interpret his music?
What are the different challenges you face performing your own music to that of another artist?
Do you find it restrictive to have to perform the songs as true to the original as possible? Would you like to try different arrangements? Which ones in particular?
Which of his songs are your own favourites and why?
What are your plans for the future?
