The History Of Rock & Roll

Rock and Roll has been described as a merger of country music and rhythm and blues. But, if it were that simple, it would have existed long before it burst into the national consciousness. The seeds of the music had been in place for decades, but they flowered in the mid-1950s.  What cultural forces combined to launch Rock and Roll?  We’ll discuss that and many other aspects of how Rock and Roll evolved through the 60s and 70s.  Finally, we’ll ponder the question of whether or not Rock and Roll still exists as a genre. Put on your Blue Suede Shoes and get ready to rock – this is going to be a multimedia walk down Memory Lane!
