"BECAUSE YOU'RE MINE, I WALK THE LINE."
He was known as the man in black.

(Song from humanitarian award tape ) "

I WEAR THE BLACK FOR THE POOR AND THE BEATEN DOWN, LIVING IN THE HUNGRY HOPELESS SIDE OF TOWN AND I WEAR IT FOR THE PRISONER"
Cash sang about the common man--something he told Kurt Loder of MTV News in his last televised interview.

MANDATOR CREDIT: COURTESY MTV (burned on ) "I WOULDN'T LET ANYBODY INFLUENCE ME INTO THINKING I WAS DOING THE WRONG THING ABOUT SINGING ABOUT DEATH, HELL AND DRUGS CAUSE I'VE ALWAYS DONE THAT AND I ALWAYS WILL."
Cash's biggest hit came in 1969 with a funny song about a boy with a girl's name.
"SOME GAL WOULD GIGGLE AND I'D TURN RED. AND SOME GUY WOULD LAUGH AND I WOULD BUST HIS HEAD I'LL TELL YA LIFE AIN'T EASY FOR A BOY NAMED SUE."
He won 11 grammys and.was inducted into the Rock and Roll and Country Music halls of fame. He was honored with the Humanitarian award.
And most recently was recognized by MTV for the Nine Inch Nails song Hurt.

Ritter made Threes Company a smash hit in the 1970s and staged a comeback with new comedy 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. He was taping new episodes of that show when he collapsed on the set Thursday. Doctors say Ritter was killed by an undetected flaw in his heart but to those who knew him well, his heart was the best thing about him.

Co-stars and friends said Friday, Everybody loved John Ritter. Whatever set he was working on, he made it a very fun place.

(Chris Lawrence/Hollywood)

Ritter graduated from Hollywood High School and years later, found a permanent home here when he was awarded a star on the Walk of Fame.
Johns star was placed next to his fathers Western film star and country musician Tex Ritter. All morning, fans have been coming by to leave flowers and other things to remember him by.

Ritter was just a week away from his 55th birthday, and leaves behind a wife, 5-year old daughter and three older children from his first marriage. But to fans of his characters John Ritter leaves the kind of laughs that will live on for years.))

The vote was unanimous, though the United States and France abstained from voting. A deal was reached this week to partially compensate relatives of the victims of a French airliner bombing in 1989. It was that agreement that cleared the way for today's vote. The move was really only a symbolic gesture, because the sanctions had been suspended indefinitely --after Libya handed over suspects in the bombing of a Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland a year earlier.
