MY GENERATION:
Rock Music Legends

Explore the 1960's in this multi-part series.

People who grew up in the 1960s and 1970s had a soundtrack to the events of their times. It alternated between feel-good sounds of the age to the clashing of generations over issues that would set the course of the rest of the 20th century.

Continuing his very popular series from last fall, Russ Gifford will discuss the giants of the times and their lasting legacy. Each session is built around video and audio clips and will feature discussion, debate and hopefully a few insights. We'll cover the person's entire career, but we'll ground the discussion in the social events of the years listed in each section.

Experience the sights and the sounds of the 60's with videos, music and memories. We'll also look for clues why this generation, which came together in the late 1960's has become the most divided generation in history today.

Thursday, Nov. 6;

Setting the Stage:

CROSBY, STILLS, NASH and YOUNG

In their various permutations, whether with other bands or as soloists, the music of CSNY left an indelible mark on the Boomer Generation. We'll trace the family tree, and look at the songs that became milestones in boomer memories, We'll also see the post-'60's reflected in the groupings, regroupings, spinoffs and spinouts of this, the first of  the rock supergroups.  And along the way, we'll watch as the fabulous Sixties make way for the sensational Seventies!

Time: 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Location: Large Lecture Hall
Fee: $5 per session

Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
