The Birth of Rock and Roll
Music in the 1950s Through the 1960seBook - 2013
"When rock and roll first burst onto the scene in the 1950s, it was more than a new form of music-it was a rebellion against the past. With the music of such artists as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and the Supremes came a new attitude that allowed fans-many of them young-to look past the social norms of the time, a shift that included a greater interaction with and understanding between the races. This stunning, story-filled volume examines the phenomenon of rock and roll-the way it was before it crept into the mainstream it had once retaliated against-and the many musicians who made it into an art."-- Provided by publisher.
