we'll miss you, larry

Larry Norman [1947-2008] died last Sunday. He was the Bob Dylan of Christian music. I know "Christian" often makes a better reality than it does an adjective, but Larry was the real deal. He was writing classics in the 70s like "Why Should the Devil have all the Good Music?" It is said that "his influence outweighed his sales so much that it's comical. He certainly had a heart for evangelism — almost to his detriment, I might say. He really could've been a star if he were singing about something other than Jesus." Read more here.

Larry Norman was freaking amazing and will most definitely be missed.

Thanks so much for lunch, again.

I want a copy of that cd.
