1965 was a turning point year for rock ‘n’ roll when rock music met poetry through folk-rock as introduced by The Byrds and Bob Dylan, among others. Rock became a music of substance, often with lyrics that eschewed the standard boy-girl ‘Moon, Spoon, June’ themes to instead speak of personal angst, such as “Like A Rolling Stone,” Mr. Tambourine Man,” “Help!”, and “Satisfaction.” We’ll explore the seismic shift in rock music that year.
