My friend happened to be reading David Noebel because our friend Gabby had unloaded his collection of anti-rock books on my friend. This is what both Gabby and my friend came to believe reading these books and pamphlets. The subtext of every attack on rock and roll is simple:
David Noebel is the king-goose looney of the anti-rock crowd. Here are his two most famous works:
And if that doesn’t work for you, try this – rock was the music of Satan.
