    I saw Larry some 34 years ago when he played at a local park in Lancaster PA. I didn’t know who he was nore did most of the crowd so it would seem. He was not introduced but just came on stage, a band shell and started singing: just him and his guitar. He played about 30 minutes and left. A guy came on stage and said “Thanks for coming”. And that was it. I had to go buy the album, Only visiting This Planet to know what he sounded like because I talked with friends the whole time he sang.

    Saw him again during Creation Festival sometime in the late 90′s and he was just as enigmatic then as he was back in the early 70′s. i’ll miss him.

    Thanks for the link, Jeffrey. It sounds weird, but Larry Norman was an important part of my growth as a Christian. “Stranger in a Strange Land” holds a very special place in my heart…
