Thread Name: What is Rock 'n Roll???
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.
