The Music Thread: Thank You United Kingdom

ONT Musical Interlude.jpg


***

As we approach our 247th birthday and separation from England. We owe the UK a big thank you.

Yes America is the home of Rock 'N Roll. But where would have music gone without the British Invasion?

In your humble Cob's opinion the early years of Rock 'N Roll were made better by the British Invasion. And I'll go out on a limb and say that UK Rock was much better than American Rock.


From bluesy rock to prog rock to glam rock to punk rock, the UK rocks!

Hell even the term "Heavy Metal" was coined by a bunch of Canadians who had relocated to California. Yes, Steppenwolf is basically an emigre band from Canada.


Where would American music be without the following groups? I say in a sad state, prove me wrong. Don't think UK rockers are the best? Check out the following:

  • The Beatles
  • David Bowie
  • The Clash
  • Cream
  • Eric Clapton
  • Jethro Tull
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Pink Floyd
  • Queen
  • The Rolling Stones
  • The Sex Pistols
  • The Who
  • Yes

  • And who could forget this classic?


    Or this classic................?

    ***

    Yes Americans invented Rock 'N Roll and The Blues. But, UK groups have made the Rock 'N Roll genre so much better. Would we be still listening to surf music if it weren't for the British?
