Building on the work of earlier artists in blues, jazz, gospel, and country, uniquely American musicians such as Big Mama Thornton, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, and many others created a new sound, an explosion of energy full of rhythm and excitement that forever changed popular culture and enriched the soundtrack of our lives.
