Just got this note. Looks interesting!

Hi Alexa,

Last week, we launched an exciting new course called Rock History. The course contains the most comprehensive curriculum on the history of rock music ever created. It 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, promoters, and cultural trends that shaped it.

We’re excited to host a Rock History video event, live from Berkleemusic’s studio in Boston, next Thursday, March 8th: an exclusive conversation between course author and instructor Steve Morse and well-known Boston-based DJ and musicologist John Laurenti.

Steve Morse was the senior rock music critic at the Boston Globe for three decades. He has a rich background in rock, having interviewed and developed strong friendships decades long with dozens of the most important artists and bands in the genre, 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.

Along with Steve, John Laurenti is one of the staples of the Boston music scene. John is a DJ at the #1 classic rock station in Boston, WZLX, and is the music director at University of Massachusetts college station, WUMB. John has also hosted a number of historical music documentaries shown on WGBH in Boston.

Please join us for a conversation with Steve and John on Thursday, March 8th at 4:00PM EST. Registration is required. Please sign up at:

Hope to see you there!
