Larry Norman (1947-2008)

Larry Norman's website

As I commented on Andrew's blog:

I remember listening to my Larry Norman cassette tape in the RV at a church camp (circa 1978) and hearing the "older folks" call it "devil music." That was the moment I realized that church culture was changing and that I was on the side of change. Thank God for people like Larry Norman who translated God's truth into the language new generations could understand.

Much of my interest in indigenous/alternative worship music (and even some of my interest in theology) is thanks to Norman's music. As much as I love hymns and their often elegant expression, his music helped me see that God's truth could be expressed in my common language.
