The Return of the NYU Punk Sessions

For the third time I am teaching Punk at NYU's Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music, Tisch School of the Arts.
As always, the Sessions have been amazing... Perhaps best known as Patti Smith's guitarist, Lenny Kaye, gone of rock's few gentlemen and intellectuals, author of You Call It Madness, the Sensuous Song of the Croon, gave a spirited talk to us last week. Next we'll be meeting the Bad Brains' bassie, Daryl Jenifer, whose intriguing new solo CD is called In Search of Black Judas... both artists well equipped to discuss how music and culture help propel society forward... Viva Punk!
