Storyline

If you could combine the onstage magnetism of Mick Jagger, the lyrical brilliance of Bob Dylan and the personal fragility of Brian Wilson, you would only have begun to scratch of the surface of Larry Norman. FALLEN ANGEL: The OUTLAW LARRY NORMAN recounts the rise of the father of Christian rock music as the rock 'n' roll Billy Graham' of the 1970s through to the height of success as the visionary behind Solid Rock Records before a personal meltdown and subsequent fall from grace exiled him to the margins of the Christian subculture he helped create. A study in polar contrasts, Larry Norman's story presents the viewer with a complex character grappling with the price of genius, the struggle made all the more difficult because Norman chose to make his mark within a religious subculture struggling to define its place within the world. Too religious for the rock 'n' rollers but too rock 'n' roll for the religious crowd, Larry Norman is the perpetual outsider, ultimately imploding under ... Written by Anonymous

I don't need "documents" when I have personal experience!
26 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I disagree that the Lonnie Frisbee documentary was a hit piece. I thought it was far more an indictment of the "church" in general, than a hit piece. It evoked much sympathy in me for Lonnie and his struggles. He was the golden boy of the "charismagic" movement of the time, and cast aside when he was no longer pretty enough to be in front of the cameras for as a poster boy of the 70's Jesus movement. It was/is Shameful, and many churches, not all, but many continue to do this today.

I have not seen "Fallen Angel: The Outlaw Larry Norman" yet, but after reading about it here, I will looking for it asap. I do however have personal experience in dealing with Larry, and it is far closer to the dark side of experience than to the light. Without going into it, I can vouch for the fact that he begged for money from the stage at some of his concerts. Money that was to be used to fight the "war on pornography" (his words) was actually used to record yet another album of songs to generate more money for the war, not for the specific purposes he outlined from the stage, which never included recording more songs. There was more, but not necessary here. I will be looking for this documentary, and will come back and offer my review of it.
