I Was There When it Happened: My Life With Johnny Cash

A wonderful memoir by Marshall Grant, bassist for Johnny Cash; part of the Tennessee Two. Marshall tells about the struggles John had with addiction, the challenges of getting him to shows but most of all the love they had for each other and how they remained friends through it all.  "Johnny Cash was the greatest human being ever to walk the face of the earth" - Marshall Grant. A must read for any Johnny Cash fan.
