Today I picked up Bobby Brown Live on a whim (nice looking copy for relatively cheap)



After listening, I was doing some researching (if you've seen the back of this album you'd understand why (one-man-band)) and apparently he had made his own religion called The Enlightening Beam Of Axonda[/b] (which is this weird combination of religion and physics).

So what other crazy religions were created up by musicians. Off the top of my head:

Father Yod - Spirit of 76 (or whatever they're called).
L. Ron Hubbard - I don't know his association with music, but he produced that apollo stars album, and not to mention scientology.

And go...

    Some Brazilian musicians. Was Tim Maia's Rational his own religious thing?

    The grandad of my best friend has a friend in Brazil that has his own mansion up in the rainforest. He created his own religion. Lots of artists go there. Lots!

    I think 90% of all Brazilian musicians are deep into religion. I think some German Jazz artists from the 60s and 70s got caught up in religion too. Not their own though.

    No. Cultura Racional was created in 1935; Tim Maia was only a follower (?).





    This dude (Maradona) is a football (soccer) artist, and he has his own religion

    a religion is a system of belief. a member of a cult follows a system of beliefs (regardless of specific content) the same way one who practices [insert your favorite world religion here] might observe his beliefs.
