It was one year ago today that Christian music legend Larry Norman passed away from heart related problems.From his biography:
Norman was an eccentric visionary whose songs drew controversy from both the conservative religious establishment and the secular music press for his lyrical mix of radical religious, political, and social themes. His 1969 solo album Upon This Rock was the first Christian rock record, and his milestone 1972 release Only Visiting This Planet is considered one of the best albums in the genre. His music was an influence on such diverse artists as U2, John Mellencamp, and the Pixies.
I think it’s fair to say that Larry Norman is the father of Christian music. So, in his honor, here is his iconic Christian music song, “Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music.” What’s your favorite Larry Norman song or moment?Get the Gospel Soundcheck headlines delivered daily to your email inbox.
