Whatever Happened To… Norman Greenbaum?

Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum (1970)
One hit. But wow, what a hit: Since its original run, it’s been featured in more than 30 films, 12 national TV ads, and 50 compilations albums. It’s also been covered innumerable times over the years, two of which topped the charts in the UK (again). Greenbaum, who also wrote the song, retired from the music business and the public spotlight during the 70’s and has been living modestly in northern California.
