Berklee Rock History

Berkleemusic.com, the online school of Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, is launching Rock History, an online course that chronicles the evolution of one of the greatest periods of music. Rock History takes an in-depth look at the highs and lows of rock over the past 60 years; the key heroes and villains, the movers and shakers from the studio and the concert stage, and a behind-the-scenes look at the managers, industry executives, promoters, and cultural trends that shaped it. The course launches tomorrow, April 2nd, 2012.

Berkleemusic has tapped Steve Morse to author and teach Rock History. Morse brings a lifetime of real-world experience to the material. Steve was the senior rock writer at the Boston Globe for over three decades, and has contributed to other top-tier press outlets such as Billboard and Rolling Stone. He has also served on the nominating committee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Steve has a rich background in Rock History, having interviewed and developed strong, decades-long ties with dozens of the most important artists and bands in rock, including the Rolling Stones (first seeing them in 1966), U2, Paul McCartney, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Metallica, Joni Mitchell, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam, Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, Tom Petty, and many more.

CEO of Berkleemusic.com, Dave Kusek says,

“The new Rock History online course from Berklee is a comprehensive, interactive, and immersive way to experience the most important and interesting time ever in the music industry. Steve Morse has such a wealth of knowledge and insight into what actually happened behind the scenes and the way the course is crafted, it is simply the most unique and exciting way to learn about this incredible time in the history of music. You will not find a better way to learn about and appreciate the classic albums and live shows that were created by the true legends of rock and roll, as the music industry ignited.”

Throughout the course, students will view exclusive, never before seen Berkleemusic video interviews with rock luminaries including: Joe Perry of Aerosmith; Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead; Mike Mills of R.E.M.; Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers; George Clinton of P-Funk; producer Jack Douglas (who has worked with Aerosmith, Patti Smith, and John Lennon); promoter Don Law; Amanda Palmer; Hugo Burnham of Gang of Four; Duke Levine (who has played with the J. Geils Band and Aimee Mann); and English super-session drummer Dave Mattacks. Berkleemusic has also partnered with Wolfgang’s Vault to provide additional rare audio, video, and other forms of historical rock media presented in an educational context for the very first time.

Aerosmith’s Joe Perry concludes,

“I have known Steve Morse for over twenty years. Steve is a musicologist and his love of music makes him a very enthusiastic teacher. Steve has an undying love of music and a proven ability to be one of music’s finest critics and writers.”

Berkleemusic hosted a free live Rock History event in Berkleemusic’s studio Thursday, March 8th: an exclusive conversation between Rock History’s Morse, and Boston DJ, John Laurenti. Laurenti joins Morse in the Pantheon of the Boston music scene. John is a DJ at Boston’s #1 classic rock station in Boston, WZLX is the music director at University of Massachusetts’ radio station, WUMB. Laurenti has also hosted a number of historical music documentaries shown on WGBH in Boston. You can see that converstation, here:

Spring Term begins tomorrow, April 2nd, 2012.

On Saturday, March 24th, The National will join Bob Weir in a free webcast from Weir’s TRI Studios. Dubbed “The Bridge Session,” the event will be an evening of mixed musical genres, political discussion, and a showcase of modern technology. For the show, Scott and Bryan Devendorf of The National assembled a band from within Brooklyn’s independent music scene including Josh Kaufman, Thomas Bartlett, Kyle Resnick, Walt Martin, Conrad Doucette and Samuel Cohen. Their setlist with Bob Weir will include original songs by the Grateful Dead and The National, as well as cover songs with subtle, and not-so-subtle, political messages. Also in attendence will be Grateful Dead lyricist and activist, John Perry Barlow, who will be a panelist in a roundtable discussion that will take place between music sets.

The roundtable between sets will focus on issues that potentially unify people of divergent ideological perspectives – specifically, getting money out of politics and protecting the First Amendment. This roundtable will not be a closed discussion. Fans watching The Bridge Session at home will be able to ask questions to Weir, Barlow and other special guests via Twitter. It is being said that this event aims to “bridge the gaps” between people of various tastes and viewpoints. The name of the event also references TRI Studios’ location just North of the Golden Gate Bridge, and The National’s home base of Brooklyn and its equally famous bridge.

The Bridge Session will be produced by HeadCount, a non-profit organization that promotes voter registration and democratic participation. HeadCount founder Marc Brownstein, a member of the electronic rock band the Disco Biscuits and a Brooklyn native, will serve as emcee. Weir also happens to be on the organization’s Board of Directors.

Along with the world watching online, there will also be an intimate studio audience of benefactors and select media. If you would like to be in attendance as a benefector, you may acquire a ticket, here.

Have fun, and enjoy the show!
