Beatle Course Big Draw At UC Berkeley

With demand far exceeding class space, an instructor at the University Of California Berkeley campus bases access to his class about the Beatles on an admissions quiz.  Max Keller, who wasn't born until after the band's break-up, says demand for the course comes from the same thing that drew him to the group, telling Bay Area's CBS5 TV 'It doesn't matter when you were born.  People love them regardless of their age, their music is timeless.Keller spent most of a year putting the curriculum for his course together, reading around 20 books and searching through archived material about the group.  In addition to close examination of 14 albums, the course includes movies, books and a lot of intense class discussion.  Students say it's no slouch course. Keller requires active class participation, written assignments and exams.
