Now in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, The Man in Black’s son John Carter Cash has spoken of his father’s relationship with Elvis.

Cash’s son said: “They were contemporaries and were part of the driving force that created rock and roll.

“My dad and Elvis were friends; they worked side by side when Elvis was there at Sun records.

“[Of course,] Elvis went on to make his films and some more music later on and they never worked again together after the 1950s.”

Over the years The Man in Black and The King crossed paths as they walked their own ways.

John Carter Cash continued: “They each had their own individual, unique traits as artists.

“Dad’s reached in different directions than Elvis’ did, enduring a legacy as a long-standing artist, having resurgences and renaissances throughout his life.”

Of course, The King had a musical comeback following his 1968 TV special, but tragically died at just 42-years-old in 1977.

Cash’s son added: “Dad carried on and he made music up until the very end. In someway, his legacy’s quite a bit different, but he always appreciated and loved Elvis.”
