TOP REVIEWS FROM MUSIC'S BIG BANG: THE GENESIS OF ROCK 'N' ROLL
What an awesome course! I am truly learning about the foundation of what we call Rock n Roll music. The professor does such a wonderful job of instructing this class. Thank you
I was very curious about the Rock and Roll genre ever since I heard the Led Zeppelin song Stairway to Heaven. The lecture has been informative and fun. Thank you very much!
Ability to integrate even small soundbites of audio enhances the lecture material. Prof. "Rock" visiting notable landmarks adds a positive dimension to the lectures.
Thoroughly enjoyed learning about the incredibly talented people who put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. Thank you is not enough!
