Satan's Rock 'N' Roll Lifestyle
By David J. Stewart
"For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God." —John 12:43
Rick Danko (1942-1999) was the bass player in a 1960-1970's famous, influential, acclaimed, roots of Rock band called, THE BAND. The group lived the Rock 'N' Roll lifestyle, promoting sex, drugs and Rock music. The band performed their last concert in 1978, which was recorded and turned into a movie by Martin Scorsese called THE LAST WALTZ (in which guitarist Robbie Robertson brags of the band's lifestyle of fornication with female fans). God hates that kind of adulterous lifestyle. They sold their souls to Satan!
In the video, they blaspheme God by having Lawrence Ferlinghetti recite his mockery of the Lord's Prayer. The work is called The Loud Prayer. The irreverent word “wigdom” is not a misprint...
Let us pray.
Our Father, whose art's in heaven
Hollow by thy name
unless things change.
Thy wigdom come and gone.
Thy will, will be undone
on earth, as it isn't heaven.
Give us this day our daily dread,
at least three times a day.
And forgive us our trespasses
on love's territory.
For thine is the wigdom
and power and glory...
In 1989, Rick Danko's son (Eli) got drunk one night at a college party and choked to death on his own vomit at age 18. So sad! Danko's body was found in his dormitory room at the State University of New York when a fellow student went to wake him for classes Friday, said Barbara Cavanaugh, a secretary to the coroner.
Tragically, 10-years later Rick Danko himself would also succumb to substance abuse by dying at age 56 of a drug-related heart-attack in 1999. What a sad and tragic story! A father and son, claimed by the Rock 'N' Roll lifestyle of substance abuse!
"in 1996, during a Japanese tour with Andersen and Fjeld, Danko was arrested for receiving a package of heroin that had been mailed to him there. He was found guilty and received a two-and-a-half-year suspended sentence."

This is how Andy Gibb of the BeeGees died at age 30. His heart was weak from all the cocaine drug abuse. Substance abuse is synonymous with Rock 'N' Roll music. It's all so tragic and heart-breaking. Fame and fortune often lead to substance abuse and premature death.
From Eric Clapton's, COCAINE to Toby Keith's GET DRUNK AND BE SOMEBODY, Satan is behind all this. Country music can be just as evil as Rock music. Toby Keith rightly calls himself “white Trash.”
The lead singer and guitarist of The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia (1942-1995), dropped dead of a drug-related heart-attack at age 53 while enrolled in a heroine rehab-center in California.
Please understand that I am not condemning anyone, for I am the biggest sinner I know (and so are you if you're right with God). We are all rotten sinners according to the Bible (James 2:10; Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 1st John 1:8-10). Thank God for the gift of His precious only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, our great Redeemer, Who gave His blood to pay for our many sins (1st Peter 1:18-19). Jesus died, was buried, and rose again for our justification (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Oh, that men would trust upon the Lord!!!
You are listening to THEY SOLD THEIR SOULS by Pastor Danny Castle. Here's the MP3 of the sermon you're hearing (right click to download).
Rock music has always been the Devil's music. Do you know who said that? David Bowie (Rolling Stone, Feb. 12, 1976). Isn't it sad that many professed Christians today will argue whether Rock music is of the Devil, when the Devil's crowd openly admits it! Are you on the Lord's side or the world's side? The world is pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
"Rock concerts are the churches of today. Music puts them on a spiritual plane."

Satanist Marilyn Manson has admitted...
"I don't know if anyone has really understood what we're trying to do... to lure people in. Once we've got 'em we can give 'em our message."

Oh, listen my friend... Sin always takes a person further than they wanted to go, keeps them longer than they planned to stay, and costs them more than they ever intended to pay. Satan always shows people the front yard, nice and clean; but he doesn't show people the trash heap in the backyard or all the maggot-infested garbage pails in the alley. Satan shows people the bright neon-light of Las Vegas; but he doesn't show anyone the morgues, emergency rooms and the prisons.
Satan showed Eve the ripe forbidden fruit (which would provide wisdom, nourishment and pleasure); but Satan didn't show Eve the thorns, the toil, and the sweat of the brow from hard labor. Satan conveniently failed to mention that Adam and Eve would be kicked out of paradise.
Satan is a liar, just like many people today. People lie on their wedding day, promising “until death do us part... for better, for worse”; yet people file for divorce when times get worse and quit on their spouse. If you don't mean “for better, for worse,” then don't you lie on your wedding day! Don't you do it!
Business contracts these days are all rigged, written by lying lawyers who deceive people with subtle legal jargon that the average person could never understand. They deliberate bury entrapping legal text in ridiculously long pages of terms of service, hoping that most people won't read it. I believe that God has special place in Hell just for lawyers, extra hot. Jesus didn't like lawyers (Luke 11:46).
Amy Winehouse died at age 27 from alcohol and drug abuse. So many rock stars are dying from drugs and alcohol that the industry is trying to cover it up...
There are claims that Amy Winehouse was clean at the time of her death or that she died because of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Whatever the case may be, Amy Winehouse died as a result of her drug / alcohol abuse and self-destructive lifestyle. She has become the next music star in the line of many others who died at the age of 27. Others include Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain. Drug abuse and popular music has been inseparable since the birth of the Blues.
We can go as far back as Blues icon, Robert Johnson (called the Father of Rock) who was also a drunkard. More than 100 other music stars have died of drug overdoses, suicides and lifestyle related causes. This includes some of the greatest names in the history of modern music, people who have influenced and changed culture:
Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Bon Scott (ACDC) died as a result of drugs. Every music genre of popular culture has seen main figures die of drugs, suicides, murder or Sexually transmitted diseases. Think of Queen's Freddy Mercury, The King of Pop Michael Jackson, Punk rocker Sid Vicious, Grunge's Kurt Cobain, Jonathan Melvoin (Smashing Pumpkins), the Grateful Dead's Roger ‘Pigpen' McKernan, the Rappers Eazy E and 2 Pac and many others who have died young and joined the "stupid club" so to say.
In one study it says that the average age of death for music stars is only 36.9 yrs. Unfortunately for many of them only part of this popular saying is true: "Live fast, die young and have a good-looking corpse".

It always seems too good to be true with Satan. Satan offers people anything that they want in exchange for worship, but the Devil doesn't tell them that it won't last for eternity. Life is so short! The eternal life which Jesus Christ gives us will last forever and ever. Jesus came to give us life (John 10:9-10, King James Bible).
Marilyn Monroe gave her life to Satan and she lived to be a whopping 35 years old (drugs). How sad! Rock music is synonymous with Marijuana, Alcoholism, booze, illegal drugs, ecstasy, heroine speed-balling, uppers and downers, sniffing spray-paint, et cetera. Music influences people to follow the culture of the singers and band members. Hollywood is a drug-empire of celebrity junkies.
