Another Jesus Freak Called Home
According to his brother Charles, Larry Norman passed away at 2:45 am, Sunday, February 24, 2008. He died of heart failure at his home in Salem, Oregon, which is just down the road from Portland. Larry is often called the â€˜Father of Christian Rock.â€™
What a memorable comment from Chris Willman, senior music writer for Entertainment Weekly, on who Larry was and how he lived his life:
“He really could’ve been a star if he were singing about something other than Jesus.”
