The Journey from Rock & Roll to Pop

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.

During the 1950s Elvis established himself as the “King of Rock and Roll” with his suggestively gyrating pelvis and in the 1960s it was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and other famous musicians who continued the genre as “pop” (Popular) music which saw the emergence of pop bands, boy bands and solo singers who also became famous musicians.
