“Hurt”


The house where Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash lived for most of their married life, was destroyed by fire in early April. It provides the background for the music video Hurt (Nine Inch Nails cover song), filmed by Mark Romanek a few months before Johnny’s death in September 2003. It’s the most touching music video I’ve seen, amazingly powerful in its stark honesty.
