Cornerstone Vids #25: P.O.D. – 2004

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Sometime around late 2001, P.O.D. burst on the scene and songs like “Youth of the Nation” and “Alive” got pretty heavy radio-airplay and songs like “Boom” were played over and over on PA’s at football games. Before that, P.O.D. had already become a fixture at Cornerstone Festival for years. In 2004, the band played Main […]

The show was […]

Monday, May 17th, 2010

In an earlier post, I shared a video appearance of Larry Norman at one of the very first Cornerstone festivals. Today’s post has a video from Norman’s final appearance at Cornerstone Festival. In 2001, Larry Norman surprised everyone during Randy Stonehill’s show at the Gallery stage by coming onto the stage and singing “Good News” […]
