    (January 8, 1928-August 5, 1968)
    Guitar player for Johnny Cash (1954-1968)

    One critic called his guitar playing ‘woefully limited.'
    His musical style didn't really evolve over the years.
    He was a stiff and amateurish stage performer.
    Johnny Cash used to say ‘Luther's been dead a couple of years, but just doesn't know it.'
    He died from severe burns after falling asleep while smoking.
    He was a mechanic who had no professional music experience when he teamed up with Johnny Cash.
    He played on numerous hit records for Cash, including the legendary ‘At Folsom Prison.'
    He stayed loyal even after Cash became a drug-addled maniac.
    He worked hard to improve his guitar technique over the years.
    His style, although accidental, influenced many other country musicians.
    Some have suggested he was actually murdered.
    Johnny Cash liked him so much, he wrote a song called ‘Luther Played the Boogie.'
