Best Rock History Lesson 

From Songwriters to Soundmen

Hosted by the Rock Hall's VP of Education, Warren Zanes of Del Fuegos fame, From Songwriters to Soundmen: The People Behind the Hits is a series of free rap sessions with stars, legends, tastemakers, and power brokers. Over the last year, Zanes has interviewed Ruthless Records co-founder Jerry Heller, Helmet mainman Page Hamilton, Monterey Pop Festival organizer Lou Adler, and a dozen others. The conversations are seldom predictable -- Hamilton talked about music theory, jazz, and German culture, but barely touched on his band -- but they're always engrossing. And after the interviews, fans get their chance to grill the guest. Imagine Inside the Actor's Studio, but way cooler.
