The Rock That Doesn't Roll

Larry Norman is the granddaddy of Christian Rock and Roll. After becoming a Christian in 1973, I discovered that his music was not only tolerable but (amazingly for Christian music at the time), actually dang good. I loved songs like, I Wish We'd All Been Ready and The Rock That Doesn't Roll. It was Christian Rock & Roll in a time when those in the Christian music business didn't have clue one about what it should look or sound like.

It turns out that Larry Norman is playing his last concert ever tonight in Salem, Oregon. That's his current (and my former) hometown. I wish I had found out before just a few minutes ago cuz I woulda been there! I guess I'll just have to settle for this article and interview in the Salem Statesman Journal.
