I'm not going to post any videos. Instead I'll simply state a fact. Both forms of music are symbiotic and very much reliant upon one another...
Early immigrants to the US brought with them the music of the British Empire. That music was infused with, and influenced by African and Spanish music
in the new world. This mish-mash gave rise to musical variants including bluegrass, gospel, jazz, the blues, country, and early rock and roll.
Jazz, the blues, and early rock influenced the original British invasion. That influenced the next American wave, which, in turn, influenced the
second British invasion... and so forth.
In summary... go buy a Robert Johnson anthology and you'll be at the source for the modern. If you want to go further back? Sea shanties and ancient
FTR: Black Sabbath... that is all.
