Began in America as an off-shoot of Jazz with home-built instruments and improvisation. Became popular in the UK in the 1950s.
Skiffle players like Lonnie Donegan inspired a
whole generation to pick up the guitar...
...including a few lads from Liverpool.
First Full Show
dance halls filled
with new groups playing
American Rock 'n' Roll, dance
crazes and even show tunes. On
the fringes and in the underground,
bands created their own takes on American
rhythm & blues. When the Beatles debuted in
1963, the Beat Boom was born. From it came groups like:
Gary & the Merchants

In December, 1963, the Beatles' music arrived in America. The nation was desperate for something bright and hopeful after the assassination of JFK in
November. The four "Moptops" from Liverpool gave America something to,
for a time, unite behind. 73 Million people watched their appearance on the
"Ed Sullivan Show" in February, 1964 and Beatlemania swept the nation. For the first time, merchandising became a major part of a band's promotion. It was the music, however, that made the Beatles' impact so great.
Within three years of their debut in America, the Beatles had quit performing live. Their records were being burned in the American South by religious fanatics. Drugs became a mainstay
for the band. Their focus on creativity
over commercialism even garnered
the attention of the FBI and MI5.
The Beatles disbanded in 1970, after only 10 years together.
Their legacy lives on.
The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World
It's hard to decide which is more important:
The Rolling Stones' contribution to the rock
revolution of the 1960s or their longevity. The band still
tours and plays today. Even after drug busts, the death of founder Brian Jones and the break-up of their greatest rivals, The Stones weathered it all, producing a seminal work of rock: Exile on Main Street (1972).

In the face of the cultural shifts caused by rock music, politicians and conservatives branded the music "un-American" or even "Communist." The Folk movement in the 60s captured the spirit of individual expression and turned their talents towards the Civil Rights movement and other causes of the mid 1960s.
Determined to take up Woody Guthrie's legacy, Dylan released four folk albums. After hearing The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun," Dylan went electric, much to the consternation of his folk fans. The change, however, helped move pop/folk into true rock.
Blowin' in the Wind (1963)
Like a Rolling Stone (1965)
America had an answer to the immense popularity of The Beatles, but it wasn't a band - it was a single record label. Berry Gordy ran Motown out of Detroit, MI, creating a powerful force for integration and civil rights. Between 1961 and 1971, Motown notched 110 Top 10 hits. A combination of carefully groomed stars, a signature sound created by Phil Spector, simple compositions and an amazing group of studio musicians, the label released some of the most memorable hits of the 1960s.

Ravi Shankar & Raga Rock
As the 1960s waned, musicians searched for new, more exotic sounds to match the new psychadelic direction of rock and culture. The sitar and its most famouguru, Ravi Shankar, provided that sound. Used by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Crosby and more, the sitar opened up Rock to eastern music including its unique scales and modes.

San Francisco was the center of the Acid Rock movement. The advent of LSD gave way to bands foregoing the 3-minute pop song for endless "freak outs" and jam sessions at concerts, trying to replicate or enhance the acid trip their audience (and sometimes they) were on.

A Return to Form
The Band began backing Bob Dylan before breaking out on their own with Dylan's blessing. Contrasting with the LSD-fueled Acid Rock style, The Band went back to basic rock, featuring story-telling over lengthy jam sessions. After the release of their debut album, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones both made back-to-basics albums and guitarist Eric Clapton left Cream in pursuit of a more rootsy appeal.

The Jackson 5
Discovered by Diana Ross (supposedly) and with several years led off their ages, The Jackson 5 hit Motown in 1968 after and audience with Gladys Knight. Within two years they had 4 No. 1 hits including: "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There." They were money makers for Motown and for their father and manager, Joe Jackson.
Even at the young age of 11, Michael was being groomed for a solo career and superstardom. A break from the group and a connection with the great Quincy Jones skyrocketed Michael past his brothers for good.
