Johnny Cash, John Ritter are Dead

The Johnny Cash dying isn't that much of a surprise (the fact that he was only 71 is though--he looked 90). He went out on top with his recent "Hurt" video and album. Hey, a Country Music legend nominated for an MTV award--that's an accomplishment when you Country stations won't even play your music anymore.

John Ritter had country roots too. His father Tex Ritter was an old time Country and Western superstar--still lives immortally by being the inspiration behind one of Disney's country bears. John Ritter was only 54 and was working on the set of his ABC show about raising daughters when he had a heart attack yesterday. Most people remember him from Three's Company but I thought his best role was in Sling Blade.
