Summary The course is the first of two courses. It covers the history of rock from the beginning in 1955 till the year 1970. John Covach tells a lot of interesting facts about the Evolution of the music business and the technology. He will give a very good overview   over the most important musicians and bands of the rock history. I recommend to pause the lecture videos whenever a new musician is stated and listen to   the music of this musician. By doing so you will hear a lot of very good music and maybe you will find your new favourite band.
