Music - History of Rock Music: The Sixties Z202/G. Gass

Z202 is a history and appreciation of the musical and social trends
of the 1960's. The course begins with the Beatles and the 1964
British Invasion that signaled the arrival of rock's second
generation, then moves on to the other major mid-sixties figures,
including Bob Dylan, the Byrds, the Beach Boys and the long list of
great soul and Motown singers. The latter part of the course looks
at the rock explosion and social upheaval of the late 1960's, with a
special emphasis on Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and other
Guitar Heroes, San Francisco psychedelia, hard rock, art-rock,
singer- songwriters and enduring visionaries like Neil Young, Van
Morrison and Lou Reed.
