“From Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust,” a lecture-presentation by recording engineer Ken Scott, is scheduled at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, in Filene Recital Hall on the Skidmore campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

At Abbey Road, Scott recorded the Beatles for "Magical Mystery Tour" and the "white" album before moving to Trident Studios, where he worked with George Harrison on "All Things Must Pass" and co-produced David Bowie albums, including "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust" and "The Spiders from Mars." Other performers he has recorded include Jeff Beck, America, Stanley Clarke, Billy Cobham, Duran Duran, Mary Hopkin, Elton John, John Lennon, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, and Ringo Starr.  

During his Wednesday visit to campus, Scott will meet with students in the “1960s British Rock and Pop” class  and the “Music and Media” seminar, both taught by Professor Gordon Thompson. Thompson arranged Scott’s visit to campus.
