Ken delivered spoke with USW students about his his book, ‘Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust’. He also took a  masterclass with MSc Music Engineering and Production students in USW's own recording studios.

Music lecturer Stuart Jones commented: “It’s important for us to get people in from the industry to do sessions like this for students to get a real insight into the industry. Ken worked with the students directly in the studios to see what they were working on and answered questions about his time working with the Beatles and how the music industry has changed since the ’60’s.”
