Rolling Stone recently reported that Questlove, drummer of the Roots, will be teaching a course called “Classic Albums” at NYU next semester. The Vice President of A&R, Harry Weinger, will be teaching as well. The purpose of the class will be to explore “classic” as a genre, and define what really makes an album labeled as such. Aspects will include music, lyrics, production, and business to give a well-rounded view about where “classics”, like Zeppelin’s IV and Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, really do come from. How cool does that sound?
