Starting in January, students at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops will have the chance to take a course about the evolution of pop culture from 1954 to 1984 from someone who witnessed it firsthand — Andrew Loog Oldham.
Oldham, was the first manager of the Rolling Stones, discovered artist Marianne Faithfull and produced records with rock legends like Rod Stewart, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton.
The winter semester course, Rock Dreams, will explore the evolution of rock and roll, but Oldham said it will be relatable even for students who don’t have musical aspirations.
“Your dreams don’t have to be about rock. Hopefully, what I discuss and the people I discuss, it will be applicable to what the student’s life will become whether they be a carpenter or whatever,” Oldham told Daybreak Kamloops’ Courtney Dickson.
