What It Was:  Growing Up When the Music Mattered

James Pagliasotti

Course Description

The Classic Era of Rock & Roll music was a time of incredible creativity in the arts and, in artful ways, of living. It was a tumultuous time, too, when struggles over civil rights, the Vietnam war, political assassinations, and gender equity sometimes made it seem the world was coming apart. The music helped us get through it. It gave us a voice, an anthem, a gathering place where we shared our dreams and fears. This zoom lecture is a memoir of those times by a writer who covered the counterculture and the music with press credentials and a backstage pass.
