“Forest Park, Ga. — Rock music record albums, including Barry Manilow, are burned in a bonfire outside the Landmark United Pentecostal Church outside Forest Park on March 17, 1982. Traveling minister Steve Timmons branded the music a tool of the devil and albums were thrown on the fire. Timmons, a Wisconsin Pentecostal minister who is taking his crusade against rock music across the country, drew a crowd of about 200 people. (Nancy Mangiafico/AJC staff).”
