WGBH Open Vault: Rock and Roll

Sixty years after it took the world by storm, rock and roll continues to be a vital musical force. It may have branched off into a million little variations, but it remains the subject of documentaries, scholarly volumes, and much more. This collection from the WGBH Open Vault brings together dozens of interviews with rock and rollers from the 1950s to the 1990s. These interviews were originally conducted as part of a co-production between WGBH/Boston and the BBC. All told, there are over 160 interviews here with folks like Ben E. King, Al Kooper, Dick Dale, Kenny Gamble, and Leon Huff. Each video also has a transcript and complete bibliographic information. Visitors can search through interviews by name, date, or media format. Users are encouraged to leave their own comments on the videos as well.
