This two-session virtual course taught by Kit O’Toole will survey some of the major artists of the Second Wave period, from 1967 through the 1970s. It will cover genres from psychedelia through blues rock, progressive rock, glam rock, and much more. How did the First Wave of the British Invasion lead to the different sights and sounds of the late 1960s? The course will explore artists such as Led Zeppelin, Cream, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd , Fleetwood Mac, the Bee Gees, Van Morrison, Elton John, David Bowie, and Yes, and their impact on both British and American music. Finally, how did the Second Wave set the stage for the new wave, punk, and pop sound of the Third Wave?
