Larry Norman, R.I.P.

I missed this the other day: Larry Norman, the ’70s Christian-rock longhair who inspired Frank Black at a young age — Norman’s onstage catchphrase was “come on, pilgrim!” — died on Sunday at age 60. Pitchfork has the story.

Pitchfork also reports that Norman had been recording a new album with guest spots by Black and Isaac Brook of Modest Mouse, and that Arena Rock will release an anthology album in May.

Download Frank Black and the Catholics’ version of Larry Norman’s “Six Sixty-six.”
