Rock UK 60s

Rock UK 60s

While the reverb guitar sound of the Shadows (Cliff Richard’s backing group) became a landmark of British rock’n’roll in the early 1960s, the inclusion of rock rythms into traditional English pop & folk shaped what became known as British beat music. The Beatles were part of this wave and achieved mass-popularity in the USA in late 1963, triggering a so-called British invasion of the American Charts. In the mid-60s, successful releases by the Animals, the Rolling Stones and the Who sparked a full-fledged British rock scene which itself spawned the British RnB rock, hard rock and progressive rock genres.
