We’ll go back and look at the roots of rock and roll in the late 1940s and early 1950s ­­–– from gospel, jump blues, jazz, boogie woogie, rhythm and blues, to country music. Add in the electric guitar, radio stations willing to play the music and one young man from Tupelo, Mississippi named Elvis Presley, and you have the perfect recipe for the birth of rock and roll. Many thought it was just a phase that would die out as teenagers grew up, but they were wrong. Rock and Roll may have changed, but "Rock and Roll will never die.”
