"From its earliest beginnings, the genre known as “Rock ‘N Roll” was an amalgamation of other forms of music, combining elements of other genres to create something new and exciting. Disc jockey, Alan Freed may have inadvertently named it, but there were certainly many artists who contributed to the creation of the genre, primarily from the genre known as Rhythm & Blues, most of whom were simply making the kind of music that they themselves would want to hear. Little Richard once said, “The Blues had an illegitimate baby, and we named it Rock ‘N Roll.” It may have been created in America, but there are many that will argue that the British perfected it. Regardless, of where you stand on that issue, it’s hard to deny the evolution that Rock ‘N Roll and all of its splintering sub-genres have gone through over the last 60 years.”
