Summary The course is the second of two courses. It covers the history of rock from the 1970s till now. John Covach tells a lot of interesting facts about the development of the Music business 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. For me this course was not that interesting like the first part. Maybe because I already know a lot of the newer bands and therefore I get less new impressions then in the first part of the course.
