Frankfurt, West Germany, September, 1959: Country music star Johnny Cash enjoys a cup of coffee as he talks about the three years he spent at Landsberg while serving in the U.S. Air Force in the early 1950s. "I had a small country music band," he said. "We used to play at the base or in German gasthauses. But I was in a security unit and I couldn't get around much."
