Who’s The Most Stylish Musician Of Them All?

We’ve been chatting here at The HornetThe Guv’nor, The Man From the Hornet and all the team (meet them at our website here) – about musicians and how stylish they can be. And we’d like to open out the discussion. So…


Who is the most stylish musician of them all?




Drop us a line or leave us a comment here or on Facebook, we’ll collate them and The Man From The Hornet will write them up for the blog in August.


Here’s a suggestion to get you started…


When talk turns to artists, The Guv’nor often cites Johnny Cash as one of the greats. And his look is a powerful one indeed: The Man In Black.


In his 1971 song The Man In Black, Cash explains his look thus:


I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,

I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime, But still is there because he’s a victim of the times.

Stark, strong, part preacher, part morally-ambiguous anti-hero, it served Cash well throughout his long career from young buck….

… through his show business heyday…

Cash 2

…to his Reaper-bating final act. F. Scott Fitzgerald once observed that there are no second acts in American lives. He hadn’t reckoned with the mighty John Cash.

Johnny Cash’s “lost” album Out Among The Stars is available to buy now.
