Walter Everett Musicologist

Walter Everett is a music theorist specializing in popular music who teaches at the University of Michigan.

His books include The Beatles as Musicians: Revolver through the Anthology (1999, ISBN 978-0-19-512941-0), which has been called "the most important work to appear on the Beatles thus far",[1] and its follow-up volume, The Beatles as Musicians: The Quarry Men through Rubber Soul (2001). He also wrote The Foundations of Rock: From 'Blue Suede Shoes' to 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' (2008, ISBN 978-0-19-531024-5) and has contributed to titles in the Cambridge Companions to Music series. Gary Burns, editor of the journal Popular Music and Society, describes Everett's Beatles as Musicians volumes as a "monumental two-book set" that has furthered the field of musicological study begun in 1973 by Wilfrid Mellers.[2]

Everett received the Kjell Meling Award for Distinction in the Arts and Humanities.[1]
