Good course but too much focus on US and UK and too much on racial and gender issues - focus on the music
Similar to Part One, but continues with the history of rock into more recent times (1990s). Very short course compared to the other one. Pros and cons from Part One apply to Part Two.
this is a great course. i learned a great deal about the history and gained a better understanding of the music i enjoy.
Continuing from Part One, the History of Rock course segues into the music scene of 70s and beyond. A thoroughly enjoyable course for anyone interested in any form of music in general.
