“Legends of Sun Records” museum exhibit to include Johnny Cash drums

The drum set of W.S. “Fluke” Holland, Johnny Cash’s drummer of 20 years, is on display at the new “Legends of Sun Records” exhibit in Memphis, TN. This is the kit heard on “I Walk the Line,” Folsom Prison Blues,” and many others.

At Sun Records, it wasn’t something that we thought would make history… It just happened. We never thought anyone would even know about it after a couple years.
