Lennon, Dylan, Alice, & Jesus: The Spiritual Biography of Rock and Roll
By Greg Laurie
Approximately seventy years ago, the mixing of gospel music and the blues gave birth to a new music genre: rock and roll. Love or hate the genre, it broke new ground in the world of music. Pastor Greg Laurie has loved rock and roll since the sixties. He has also known and met many of the big performers. In this book, Pastor Laurie covers a large number of famous rock and roll performers, the ups and downs of their lives and their search for something beyond fame, fortune, and excess. George Harrison found the Krishnas, Bob Dylan and Alice Cooper found Jesus, and others unfortunately joined the 27 club (rock stars who died at the young age of twenty-seven, often the result of drug and alcohol abuse). A fascinating read.
