What is rock and roll, the history of rock and roll 

In the late 50s, headlines began to appear in Newspapers: “Rock’ n ‘ roll is dead.” The fans had a lot to think about. After all, Elvis was drafted into the army, Chuck berry received a prison sentence, #Gerri_li_luis lost the respect of fans because of marrying a minor, and #Baddi_holly and Richie Valens were tragically killed in a plane crash. Who can continue the galaxy of hits and inflame the hearts of young people? The fab four. The Beatles managed to give rock ‘ n ‘ roll a different sound and make the whole world go crazy for their songs. But this is a new stage in the development of music.

Rock and roll today
Still, is rock ‘ n ‘ roll dead or alive? While there are groups that perform this genre. So far, covers of popular American songs from the middle of the last century are being created. As long as the memory of #Elvis_presli, #Baddi_holli and other founders of the style is alive, it is not necessary to talk about the death of rock and roll. After all, their work is still popular. Hits from half a century ago are used as musical accompaniment for movies and commercials.

But this is only a small part of the argument that rock ‘ n ‘ roll has not disappeared. After all, this genre became the basis for the emergence of many rock trends. There are heated debates between music lovers: is rock music and rock ‘ n ‘ roll the same thing? And most agree that rock and roll has become the progenitor of rock culture. It turns out that art-rock, folk-rock and other directions have the same basis. This means one thing: rock ‘ n ‘ roll is alive, even in a modified form.
