The OC Weekly has a really interesting story up on documentarian David Di Sabatino and his new film Fallen Angel: The Outlaw Larry Norman — and it includes a quote from yours truly. I have not seen the new film yet, but I hope to soon, as I found Di Sabatino’s previous film, Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher (2005), quite fascinating, and everything I have heard about Norman suggests that he was, at minimum, a rather dramatic character. Definite movie fodder there.
