Synopsis:

Mysticism and Religions in Rock.

Throughout the history of rock music, spirituality and the great religions of humanity have influenced numerous musicians. Among them, four extraordinary artists stand out who form the pillars of this book and whose music represent the four great religions: Hinduism -reflected in the work of George Harrison-; Christianity-Judaism-which forms the substratum of numerous songs by Bob Dylan-; Islam -represented by Cat Stevens, also known as Yusuf Islam after his conversion to this religion-; and Zen Buddhism -whose influence is fundamental in the music of Leonard Cohen-.

Likewise, the influence of religions and mysticism is prominent in the work of other great artists such as Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Sinéad O’Connor, Van Morrison, Suzanne Vega, Johnny Cash and Nico, who are also analyzed in detail in this work.
