While some artists manage to have lengthy careers, it’s a fact that they will only be at their creative and commercial peaks for a specific period of time. Some manage to stretch that period out for longer than others, but they all, for a brief time, tap into something special in the universe and harness its power to create works that sell by the millions and end up standing the test of time. What is it that allows this creatively fruitful period to happen? For every artist, the answer is different, which is why the course explores eight artists during what Jack Hamilton would call their classic period, the point at which they created their most inspired works, what got them there, and what kept them there for those years. Artists include Elton John, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson.
