Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
That list in the CD set is quite interesting.    I can see most of the names.   But the Delmore Brothers as rock pioneers?    I really like the Delmore Brothers--sing some of their songs-- but I'd put them solidly in country or bluegrass.    Where do you think the rock connection is?

I'd think a stronger case could be made for Bob Wills, in fact--as far as rock antecedents.
