The Long and Winding Road

Headline: IN THE CLASSROOM:Rock 'n' roll retrospective

Students in Joe Poshek's History of Rock Music class watch a clip of The Beatles performing on the Ed Sullivan Show in the Robert B. Moore Theatre on the Orange Coast College Campus Thursday.

Why weren't these types of classes offered when I was at LSU? Maybe then I wouldn't have been placed on academic probation and made the decision to go into the military instead.

Then again, nothing beats rocking and rolling with an M-60. I suppose my life had a way of turning out to be a really, really great show anyway.

I hated high school, but liked college overall.

John - as long as it's not CNN

Beth - don't go using big words when I just said I dropped out of college! geez! :)

Mark - H.S. sucked for everyone, I think. And you're right, college was a lot better, I just didn't have the discipline at that time in my life. The military was what I needed to straighten my butt out.

I was born to soon. I would have loved that.
Watching music TV shows is something I could have excelled in.

I still think studying calculus caused my schoolboy delinquency.

they should play more music in school.. my friend, who's a middle-school teacher, recently discovered that no-one in his class had heard of john lennon. that's just crazy.

Ben, my problem was NOT studying. :)

Mindy - that is insane! parents are slacking with their pass-down-the-good-music-wisdom job. That's a shame.

I had to go to college to find a proper music appreciation course...it did wonders, even if I hated the teacher...he did open my ears up to some amazing stuff...this should be taught on the lower rungs of education
