Your probably all wrong But hey ! Show me a Yankee Band that can do this ?
Bob Dylan, Velvet Underground, Grateful Dead, and Allman Brothers are American Bands that are up there with those bands.
I really believe the first genuine sub-genre of R'n'R was Rockabilly, a blend of R'n'R and Hillbilly music. If Elvis is to be considered a rocker, it has to be because he played Rockabilly. It occurred within early years of R'n'R and was really a White thing, and there weren't too many British bands who jumped on that bandwagon early.
Hmmm, let's see...I see Rock N Roll being invented in the U.S. but perfected in the U.K....well, at least he's pretty.
Oddly many Brit rockers emulated Americans, Cowboy boots, western fashion etc...
Was there any US bands that started wearing bowlers and carrying umbrellas, cod pieces, dressing like jesters etc?
How many US skiffle bands where there?
Whole lotta Americans stopped getting haircuts after Feb 9 1964...
You'll see a rather sudden upturn in the sales of guitars in America after that date too.
More than British bands perfecting Rock, which we already had great examples of, I'd say British bands invented Pop Rock.
Before they showed up pouting at the teenage girls, Rock was more rebel fringe music.
Pop Rock came from the British, for better or for worse...
Elvis is literally known as The King of Rock n Roll.
3 legs of the stool.
Immediate demerits for ELO and Supertramp (speaking of “stool”)
Classic rock ...
I can't ever forget Hawkwind. Johnny Kidd, The Big Three, Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages and a few others perfected it before Lord Lemmy joined the spaceship and took Hawkwind to levels few other bands have achieved.
Who voted for him?, who first proclaimed it?, which publicist generated the tagline, forged the hook, enbarbed it and baited it with a juicy worm?
Not entirely related
Claiming, or having claims made by doctors of spin does not imbue blood of blue. ( Note : tongue wedged firmly in cheek )
Yeah, that's the great thing about the UK. They don't draw artificial lines separating people into one class or another.
He won the title by rockin’ his butt off.
Don't forget American music is WAY more diverse!
Here's a list of great Brit Country bands....
Here's a list of great Brit Jazz bands.....
Here's a list of great Brit R&B bands......
You may be able to add a couple to these list but they'd out of top 25.....
Elvis himself said, after seeing THIS guy perform "I don't know why they call ME the king ..."
And further more....
Maybe it was Cliff Richard ?
Maybe it was Johnny Hallyday ?
Maybe it was Chuck Berry or Little Richard ?
Which is better, The Animals or Jefferson Airplane?
It's just personal taste.
And the anti-UK hate just keeps on comin'...
Enjoy this while you can - it'll probably get deleted because the word 'vote' is spoken twice.
Completely legit to bring up Who , Kinks , Beatles, Stones , Zeppelin.
Those bands don’t even need to be mentioned they are so monumental/elemental to the power if rock n roll.
But don’t shoot yourself in the foot by even whispering “Uriah Heep”.
That’s just embarrassing.
I’m 55, soon to be 56.
When I listen to music I make sure it counts. Who knows how much time I have ? Not going to waste it on 4th and 5th tier bands .
And - it’s ok to really love a band and still have objectivity about them and their standing/non-standing in the pantheon...
