Elvis Presley may have been the King of Rock and Roll, but five major artists were seminal in making the music more mainstream for radio and younger audiences in the late 1950’s. Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly forged the road and assured the world that “rock and roll is here to stay.” This course offers a chance to learn about these five pioneers, their musical contribution to Rock and Roll and the legacy and inspiration they left for generations of musicians to follow. It’s a rich heritage. Mr. Joyce and OLLI are ready to pass it on to you. (ONLINE)
