They were both icons in their own respects. I too grew up on Three's Company and Ritter used to make me LMAO on a regular basis. I can't believe he's gone already.
While Cash seems to have been tagged with the less than deserved moniker of "Country Music Legend", he was far more than that. For those of you that think you know who he was, I suggest digging a little deeper. You may gain a whole new admiration for the man.
To add a little levity to the situation, I can't help but imagine the two of them in reversed roles. The Man in Black in a scene with Janet, Chrissy, and Mr. Roper pulling a prat fall over an ottoman. And perhaps Johnny Ritter performing live at San Quentin would prove entertaining!
Revenge is a dish best served cold...
With a side plate of steaming entrails,
And a nice Bordeaux!
