The Vatican on Rock Music

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2010

L’Osservatore Romano ranks the top hits of rock music

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has offered its list of the top 10 albums in this history of rock music. The list begins with the Beatles’ Revolver, followed by David Crosby’s If I Could Only Remember My Name and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Other artists included on the Vatican newspaper’s list are Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, U2, Carlos Santana, and Oasis.

I might agree with some, but definitely disagree with others. Good thing neither I nor the L’Osservatore Romano are considered infallible :-)

Another good article on this here.

Santana is only an Enter=-tainer, Danergous! to Our Lord. He thinks he is the chosen 1. N0! After I realize this uniformed soul that the Pope cannot be in his 3outofworld experience. I’m no longer his STUPID follower. What’s oldsc00L heer. is I grew up with Johhny (Jimi) Hendrix in Seattle, I know the whole familia. Never did I hear my friend Jimi’s father that Jimi had remorse feelings against th Catholic Church. And I will back those words word for word. On the other hand I also know Bruce Lee’s famila from Seatt;e/ Bruce was once a Catholic and his friend in Seattle will admit that. How do I know? Well! drop in in day at KuoKous in will go trom there. I’ve invited all kinds of people and when I mention KauKau’s they freek out. That’s to be expected. All I Have to Say is I’m Fortunate to know my neighbors. Lasts photos is Jesse Glover, Bruce’
first American Student.. Call me at at all x of the DAY. im here 4 you as a CATHOLIC! ;Thank You Mr C asSatana! hEY i Collect 40 years of concerts back?
gIVE mY NAME 2 All your angeLS. JUAN LEON GONZELZ-SIERRA!
