which calls the year 1966 "probably the era's zenith" when in fact the golden age of classic rock was just getting started, with countless musicians in different countries sharing influences and expanding the boundaries of popular music. Focusing on just a few individuals' interactions, as if they were equivalent to an 18th century literary salon and almost the only artists worth paying attention to, is a dissertation-style academic conceit.
