“The Big British Bands”: The British may not have originated rock n’ roll, but they certainly exploited it much better than the American artists who started the ball rolling in 1956. In England, they had their own stars who did their own versions of folk, pop and rock n’ roll music and the kids went wild. This book focuses on WHO influenced The Beatles to write their amazing catalog; The Rolling Stones’ British Invasion years and their ANTI-BEATLES image with their 19-year-old manager Andrew Loog Oldham; The Who For Starters covers their years up through Keith Moon’s 1978 death; KinksVille focuses on Ray Davies competitive nature with his British counterparts and so many more acts that came through Great Britain. You will gain a lot of knowledge with this very easy read for young and older fans alike.
