Course Description:

“Last Thursday, I saw my rock and roll past flash before my eyes. And I saw something else: I saw rock and roll's future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.”
Jon Landau, 1974.

Landau would soon become Bruce’s manager and “The Boss” would reach stratospheric heights in what may be the most remarkable career in rock and roll. Springsteen didn’t reinvent rock and roll; he made his own stamp and developed his own signature. Just as you can listen to any Berry song and say, “that’s the Chuck Berry sound,” you can listen to a Bruce song and say “that’s the Springsteen sound.” We invite you to join us for this revealing examination of the life and career of this American musical icon. Each session will be a splendid mix of lecture, visuals, recorded music, and live performance.
