On 4/28/20, Hunter hosted this online program as part of the Hunter@Home series.
What is “progressive rock”? What makes it different from “progressive pop”?
In this talk, distinguished music professor, rock historian, and keyboardist/vocalist Mark Spicer provides musical analysis and situates the late work of the Beatles in comparison to important debut albums and singles by Genesis, Jethro Tull, Yes, King Crimson, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, all of which travel musically on the path laid out by Abbey Road.
The event concludes with a virtual Q&A.
