The Beatles: The Solo Years with Vinnie Bruno
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Vinnie Bruno is back! The lecture will continue in the footsteps of The Beatles story and focus on the highlights of the “solo” post-Beatles careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo. We will explore the aftermath of The Beatles legacy and how they established themselves as solo artists. Our journey will also discuss their musical collaborations with each other on many of their solo projects. Coming full circle, we will explore their last collaborative project “The Beatles Anthology” released in the late 90’s.
As a Beatles Scholar and storyteller, Vinnie Bruno embraces the Beatles’ legacy while presenting entertaining, interactive, and informative programs for both the casual listener and hard-core Beatles fans. As a 60s’ Rock Historian, his program list includes historic and musical overviews of nearly 100 rock and roll musicians and groups, each of whom helped define the 50s, 60s and 70s by creating musical landscapes that captivated a generation and whose influence in popular culture still endures more than five decades later. Mr. Bruno retired as Director of First Year Programs at LaGuardia Community College (City University of New York). He holds an MPA from Baruch College and, as an adjunct professor for 25 years, taught courses in numerous disciplines including Humanities, Business and Mathematics. He currently resides in both New Jersey and Arizona.
