History of Rock and Roll:
Chuck Berry is considered as the inventor of this form of music. Berry was a black man. He hated the idea of white men being idolized and kids listening to blues. So he started the rock and roll form of music. After him probably Bob Dylan was the most influential person as far as pop was concerned.
The rock bands had their origination somewhere around in the 1950s. The United Kingdom and the United States are the places where they began. Who knows, it could have had traces of origination even in the 1940s. The America- African combination rose to prominence as they were able to attract the listeners more than other genres. When other genres of music had a slow but steady existence in the market, rock music shot to fame at an unprecedented rate.
Growth of Rock and Roll:
In the initial stages, they were highly based on real events or political situations. People used music as a means to express strong views and their opinions on the way the world works. This was possible only after the arrival of rock music. So there is no specific point as of when and how the ‘band form’ of rock performance came into existence. As the rock and roll musical songs started working with the audience, this form of music was performed both individually and as a group.
The progressive form of rock also started entering the field. Though they are pretty much similar to the ordinary form of rock music, in the progressive form the music closely associated with other forms of music like pop, jazz and classical. They were also termed as symphonic pop.
Present Situation of Rock Bands:
Have people and performers forsaken rock music?
No, that is impossible. Rock and roll is one genre that most people in the world prefer to listen to. They kick-start our spirits and make us feel on. It is pretty hard to believe that rock and roll was a genre that came into existence in the 1960s because we have been in love with it since the day we came to know of music and they have never gone outdated. So when the rock bands went lifeless, it was quite deafening for almost all music lovers.
There was a sudden thought that crossed the minds of music lovers in the recent years that the rock bands of the world probably have gone into hideouts or maybe they didn’t want to exist anymore. As ardent lovers of quality rock and roll, people feared that this specific genre might lose its ability to exist. However, the winds are saying otherwise. With the arrival of a lot of independent musicians and bands that are exceedingly good at this genre, there is a definite resurgence of this music.
