As the voice delivering one of the most important protest folk songs of the 60s, there were few participants in the early Jesus Music scene as high profile as Barry McGuire. First establishing himself as a member of the extremely successful folk group The New Christy Minstrels, and then scoring a major hit with Eve Of Destruction, McGuire was a household name when he came to Jesus in the late sixties. Though he would write and record several influential records in the seventies, he also had a massive influence as an encourager and mentor to the up-and-coming Christian musicians. Barry McGuire is a hero of mine. Barry has taken time to encourage me at different points in my career.
I think its a testament to spiritual authenticity that he'd try to encourage a younger artist. Its a real blessing when you find that your role models are the ‘real deal offstage as well as on. - RS
