Rock and Roll
Rock and Roll

Rock and roll (often written as rock & roll or rock 'n' roll) is a genre of popular music that originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s, primarily from a combination of African American blues, jump blues, country, jazz, and gospel music. Though elements of rock and roll can be heard in country records of the 1930s, and in blues records from the 1920s, rock and roll did not acquire its name until the 1950s.

Hey Friends,

This is my site, therefore, my music. This page is a growing list of the music I like,both past and present. I spent many hours with friends (you know who you are) back in Kenmore, New York listening to a lot of great music. This continued with new friends in San Diego, California, especially at those crazy college parties. I am in Japan now and the listening continues with my Japanese friends who love to rock out at my house parties. Enjoy and be sure to contribute to these pages.
Fun Easy English Visitors,

These music pages are also for those of you coming from my Fun Easy English site. Listening to rock and roll music and learning the song lyrics is a great way to learn English idioms, slang, and intonation. I am trying to add song lyrics as quickly as possible. Enjoy.
