A History of Rock and Roll: Woodstock to Garage Band


Course description

This course is a continuation of A History of Rock and Roll: Mississippi Delta to British Invasion, though it is not necessary to have completed it in order to enjoy and benefit from this course.

This time our focus is on the late 1960s counter-culture, the Hippies, Woodstock, the Rock Concert, and then the globalization of Rock, a process that began with the British Invasion and Canadian Rock, but then spread all over the world, where this unique genre was accepted, but then re-interpreted and transformed by the various cultures it encountered.

We will also examine the ways this music has been monetized by recording studios, record companies, band managers, movie moguls, advertisers, concert promoters, and the artists themselves. Finally, we will try to figure out how the rise of the internet and its various technologies have radically democratized and balkanized rock music to the extent that every listener may one day have his/her own virtual band that plays exactly what one wants to hear.
