Film, Tour Remember Larry Norman
'Fallen Angel' documentary, director, and Randy Stonehill headline event
According to a press release, the documentary asks whether Norman, known as the “father of Christian rock," was "nothing more than a contemporary Elmer Gantry, a musical flim-flam man out to con the faithful."
The release also calls Norman "the most vibrant musical performer to shake, rattle and roll church pews during a hip countercultural revival of religion known as the 'Jesus movement.' Casting a prophet-like presence and with lyrics that cut to the marrow, Norman became the voice of a generation of young Christians trying to make sense of their faith amidst the chaos of the 1960s. . . . Over time however, Norman’s crafted image began to overtake him and the line between fact and fiction became blurred.
