Rock around the Bible

Rock around the Bible March 5, 2020

With a project related to progressive rock and the Bible in the works, and the news having broken that Genesis will reunite for a tour, you’re probably expecting this post to be connected to that. It isn’t, at all, as far as I can tell. I just happened to come across several things related to the other kind of rock. And to be honest, I’d be hard pressed to decide which sort of rock I find most interesting, given some of these finds and news items!
