Episode 2: Good Rockin tonight
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode shows after the formative years, Rock n Roll becomes a main stream media with more integration going on with white musicians taking in black influence and vice a versa. There was still fear of integration by the status quo, but Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lewis crossed the racial barrier, and rock n roll music was coming into mainstream America.

Rock n roll was still pretty much an American phenomena in the '50s, and as rock n roll gained wide acceptance, producers and composers were writing for both black and white artists. Most notable of these producers was Phil Spector. With his many hits and introduction of Ronettes, rock n roll music sees its first golden age.

As the '50s rockers stopped playing (Little Richard becoming a priest, Chuck Berry going to jail, Jerry Lewis marrying his teenage cousin, and Buddy Holly getting killed in a plane accident), early '60s rock gets filled with manufactured stars such as Bobby Vee, Fabien, Rick Nelson, Paul Anka, and Niel Sedaka in which America was about to get a wake up call from a country across the Atlantic.
