I was hoping someone else would have touched on this by now. How much credit will the earliest pioneers of CCM get? Without Petra, there would be no Newsboys, Skillet, Stryper, etc. I feel like they'll get "the shaft" just like with the CCM anniversary special a few years ago. Petra had to cut the second verse and chorus out of "I Am on the Rock" while others got to perform full-length songs (to the best of my knowledge) and even perform more than once.

Only artists with a soft message, or have crossed over to secular are in it. Skip.

Stryper has repeatedly stated they were not Petra listeners. They did not come up through the ccm labels, or venues. Instead they took the more standard approach and their biggest influence is probably Van Halen. Maybe some Boston or Thin Lizzy, but certainly not Petra. Heck, they still pretty much play in mainstream venues and I think they are on a non ccm label.

Nah. Read Mike Sweet's book. They didn't get or like CCM. That wasn't for them.

I wasn't there, but what was on the DVD was kind of rough. What they did was enough. I watched it "live", but I can't recall if it was truly live or if they were just streaming the pre-edited content. So, I can't recall if the song was botched and edited down.

Read an interview with Michael Sweet years ago who said he got the idea for Stryper when he was at a Van Halen concert and said to himself, "Why can't there be a Christian group that rocks like this?" He also said in one of his recent YouTube videos that he still uses what he called "Van Halen tuning" on his guitar, which I think is just drop D tuning.

There is no way that there can be a Jesus music movie without Larry Norman, Petra (Volz era), Randy Stonehill and a bunch of other hippies that came out of the that late 60's class. These were the people that broke the doors down... not DC Talk, Michael W Smith...

Yeah, he tuned down a half step and then went drop D other times. He tuned to himself. Everyone had to tune to him. Many times he would just pick up the guitar, tune it and then go. He had it down. He was in tune just about everywhere that way. There are some interviews about this.
