Course Description

In the decade from Jail House Rock to Sgt. Pepper, rock and roll skyrocketed from derision to dominating music and impacting everything from race to sex to politics. Come relive that wild ride with a foot soldier of the revolution who had a #1 hit rock record in 1967, and close encounters with Ricky Nelson, Zappa, Hendrix, The Who, Credence, the Doors and more. Informed by his Graduate studies in musicology at the University of Chicago, get an insiders view, from the back rooms of the Whisky to the front seat at Monterey Pop, of how and why rock and roll changed music, culture and the world.
