1940s - Keith Rowe born March 16, 1940 in Plymouth, England 1950s - Art School - Begins playing guitar - Was frustrated, because he felt like he was discovering who he was in painting class, but when he played guitar he realized he was just copying the style of other guitarists rather than finding his own style. - Spent hours listening to Charlie Christian, Barney Kessel, and Wes Montgomery – could imitate them but felt like he was not making music that was uniquely his (late ‘50s, early ‘50s) 1960s - 1965: AMM is formed in London, England. Members are Lou Gare (saxophone), Eddie Prévost (drums). Began just as a weekend experimental workshop session at the Royal College of Art in London. Rowe, Gare, and Prévost were the three core members but others were welcome to sit in. - 1966: Lawrence Sheaff (cello and accordion) and Cornelius Cardew (piano and cello) were added to the lineup and began calling themselves AMM. - AMM: the origins of the name are a mystery, as the band has vowed to keep it a secret. The band does not discuss any of their performances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
