Scott Booker, “I met The Flaming Lips and saw the work ethic of bands like them, and the Sonic Youths of the world, who, even though the world wasn’t embracing them yet, they didn’t care. And they make the effort, and made the art, regardless. And then the world slowly accepted them – either by becoming stranger as a whole, or maybe they just became more familiar with this kind of art. That’s kind of how the school came about, in a way, was this same kind of thing. I mean, the idea of rock n’ roll, and music like the being accepted by the masses as a whole – and the people that could make a decision about whether a university should offer these kind of courses. Well, we’ve reached this kind of tipping point, where the people who make those decisions actually grew up with rock n’ roll.”
