We went to see Grant Lee on Friday night. He played a nice set of really quality songs. He has great stage presence and is funny in between songs. We were able to talk to him briefly afterward as he mingled with the littles (like me).
I read that Lee’s dad was some sort of pastor. If true, this adds evidence to my thesis that a great many celebrities come from Christian backgrounds against which they are rebelling. I read about Meghan Fox the other day and it is the same thing with her – grew up Pentecostal and rebelled mightily against that upbringing. For some reason, many Christians ping-pong so radically to the other side that they become the worst offenders on the other side.
