My Rock and Roll Roots,

I grew up with music, particularly Rock and Roll. Although my parents did not play any musical instruments, there was a solid interest in music in my family. My Mom would listen to pretty much whatever was playing at the time while my Dad had more particular tastes in music. My Dad worked for a record album distributing company for about 17 years and used to bring home tons of newly released "DJ" samples in the form of vinyl 45"s and LP's. We had a huge phonograph record collection and were always playing a wide variety of music. When I became older, I worked for the retail division of the same company as my Dad and had access to even more music.

My friends were also interested in music and we used to get together often and listen to our favorite bands of the 60's and 70's. Then came college in the 80's and my passion for Rock and Roll continued to grow. Then along came the grunge era of the 90's and with it a lot of great bands and music. These songs from over 40 years of music hold very strong memories for me and listening to them makes me remember how simple and happy life was back then. But alas, times have changed and the music has changed along with them. Tonight I will raise a glass of wine to the best 40 years Rock and Roll has ever known.
Rock and Roll Music

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.
