Z202 | 1293 | Gass


Learn the history and appreciation of the musical and social trends of
the 1960s. 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 1960s, 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.
