Judaism's Remarkable Contributions to Rock 'N' Roll

"Judaism," Scott Benarde maintains in this Sun-Sentinel article, "permeates rock 'n' roll.

For instance:
"David Bryan, keyboard player for Bon Jovi, blows the shofar at his synagogue on High Holidays"
"David Lee Roth, who became famous with the group Van Halen, told Benarde that he learned to sing from studying for his bar mitzvah."
"Lou Reed. Would you believe the family name was Rabinowitz?"
