So what is rock anyway? Rock and roll’s origins are in country and western music way back in the 1920s already. During the 1940’s rhythm and blues was added to the mix after which performers like Fats Domino and Ray Charles added their twist which teenagers loved and their parents not so much and the generation gap established rock music as a symbol of protest and non-conformity.
