I had always heard that EW&F's album covers looked "weird" with "elements of the supernatural."
Wow! Talk about flashbacks! I remember a PO talking about EW&F's album cover artwork and saying how that alone was proof of their "occult involvement."
I've heard the John Denver rumor too. My folks, along with their Dubbie friends, threw out their John Denver albums and boycotted anything connected with John Denver as a result of that rumor.
Then, there was the rumor of Alice Cooper believing he was a reincarnated witch hung during the Salem Witchcraft Trials, Heavy Metal bands demanding the crowd join them in worshipping Satan, Stevie Nicks was supposedly an admitted witch, and Disco music led to immorality, fornication and drug use, and of course, all that insidious backward masking that seemingly was going on.
**GASP** Even The Beatles were supposed to be doing backwards masking!
Do we want to go off topic about Dungeons and Dragons?
