    This one is absolutely amazing, especially the experiment he did, that he thought would fail.
    He has a some what heavy Indian ascent but I think he's easy to understand.

    I'm not watching a 20 minute video, so I'll just say, no, they don't, for just one example, Pink Floyd formed at school.

    They formed at a school, not because of it, but in spite of it.

    It's also unlikely that the schools music program were champions of rock.

    Edit: Also, Pink Floyd was a counter culture group, nothing screams conformity more than school.

    That doesn't denote "in spite of". It denotes that school probably had no impact on them forming Pink Floyd which I would imagine is probably true.

    How does that work? All the members of Pink Floyd had reached tertiary education before they formed the band, surely their creativity must have been stunted?

    I'm not gonna pretend that I was alive during the 50's and 60's, but I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that the school would typically not want students to form rock bands back then.

    From what my parents said, schools were pretty rigid then.

    You said "in spite of" Harry. That denotes that school was a deterrant. I disagree. I would imagine that some schools deterred, some encouraged (some rock artists did well and enjoyed the encouragement of their music programs), and most had no impact.
