One of the great musical pioneers died today, and I bet you never heard of him.
Larry Norman, one of the founders of contemporary Christian music (and, like me, thoroughly appalled with its direction over the past few years) lost his life early this morning, the victim of a lousy heart. My own personal Norman memories come from hours spent on the third floor at FUMC Opelika -- Rick, our youth minister, played his songs weekly. Even now, listening to his music takes me to high school.
Anyway, I wish I could've met him. I wish I could've talked to him. And I hope I'll see him in Heaven.
