Rosanne Cash has expressed her distrust of the lucrative industry which has sprung up around her Dad Johnny since his death:

'My father was much like Matisse in that he had a creative rebirth at the end of his life. But much of the product that has come out post-mortem has been very one- dimensional and exploitative.

'I don't want to see him turned into a trading card for "cool" or some kind of "hip factor".'

The force of her complaints might have been somewhat diminished with them being made as she picked up a posthumous Mojo award for her father.
