Lindsey Buckingham was Guest Speaker at USC Pop Forum Today

The USC Popular Music Program has a unique class called “Popular Music Forum” and if you’re someone who can’t experience it in-person, this is the perfect place for you. This blog is an exclusive look into each forum.

But what exactly is the “Popular Music Forum?” In official USC course description speech, it is:

“A weekly lecture series addressing a wide range of special topics and issues ­confronting the popular musician.”

In other words, it’s a speaker series where artists and other music industry professionals (producers, managers, etc) discuss with students about the industry and their experiences with it.

The key word here is “discuss.”

The forums are more than just a “lecture.” It’s a discussion, or Q&A session, where students can ask questions and converse with the guest.

This week, we will be welcoming Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac to our forum.

This is taking place today...
Jenay, will be blogging about the experience... You should be able to catch it HERE when it's posted...
