Where Cash wrote his 1963 album Ring of Fire

Hendonsville, Tennessee - (Armageddon Press): The ghost of country and western giant Johnny Cash was seen hovering ominously over the blackened remains of his former lakeside Tennessee home that was destroyed in a mysterious fire as its new owner Bee Gee Barry Gibb was carrying out renovations.

"I was just doing a bit of DIY electrical rewiring," said former Bee Gee Barry Gibb today, "when suddenly I noticed some sparks. And then I heard an almighty wooosh! as flames leapt at me.

"So I ran outside and within minutes the whole place was gutted. And frankly, so was I."

The Cash masnion in Hendonsville, Tennessee was once featured in a video for Cash's final hit his 2002 cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt.

It was sold after both Cash and his wife June died in 2003 and was snapped up by the weasly-faced Brit crooner Gibb as a trophy.

Witnesses said the fire spread quickly and completely destroyed the building as helpless firefighters conceded defeat.

It was in this house that Cash wrote some of his most famous songs.

These include the ominously prescient hit from 1963 Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash and the 1966 Columbia compilation Mean as Hell.

"Of course I'm not superstitious," Gibb told the press today.
