BRITISH COLUMBIA (CelebrityAccess) – Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, Canada, has announced that former Beatles publicist turned Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham will serve as a visiting scholar-in-residence come the new year.
For one-semester starting in January 2020, Oldham will be teaching a course that delves into music industry trends as examined through the evolution of pop culture from 1954 to 1984.
The course, called Rock Dreams: A History, 1954-1984 | Up Close and Personal with Andrew Oldham, has no prerequisites and is open to non-TRU students. Billy Collins, a Senior Lecturer with TRU’s Tourism Management department, will be co-instructing the course with Oldham and Bruce Baugh from the school’s Philosophy department.
Oldham, who was the Stones’ first manager and produced some of the band’s biggest hits including “Satisfaction,” “Ruby Tuesday,” and “Paint It Black,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
