"From Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust," a lecture-presentation by recording engineer Ken Scott, is scheduled at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, in Filene Recital Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.
At Abbey Road, Scott recorded the Beatles for Magical Mystery Tour and the "white" album before moving to Trident Studios, where he worked with George Harrison on All Things Must Pass and co-produced David Bowie albums, including The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Other performers he has recorded include Jeff Beck, America, Stanley Clarke, Billy Cobham, Duran Duran, Mary Hopkin, Elton John, John Lennon, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, and Ringo Starr.
During his Wednesday visit to Skidmore, Scott will meet with students in the "1960s British Rock and Pop" class and the "Music and Media" seminar, both taught by Professor Gordon Thompson.
