Rock producer turned gonzo academic


Published: 22Mar2008
Sandy Pearlman was known for producing records by Blue Oyster Cult and The Clash before he became the Schulich Music School's distinguished visiting scholar. But he's a gonzo academic at heart: At the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1966, he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow in the History of Ideas. He completed graduate work at Brandeis and was a New School Fellow in Sociology and Anthropology. He now finds himself in his element at McGill.
