 Rock and roll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rock and roll emerged as a defined musical style in America in the 1950s, though elements of rock and roll can be heard in rhythm and blues records as far back as the 1920s.
Early rock and roll combined elements of blues, boogie woogie, jazz and rhythm and blues, and is also influenced by traditional Appalachian folk music, gospel, Hillbilly and country and western.
Rock and roll (also spelled rock 'n' roll, especially in its first decade), is a genre of music that emerged as a defined musical style in the Southern United States in the 1950s, and quickly spread to the rest of the country, and the world (rhythm sample).

 Blues-rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The virtuoso electric blues playing of Jimi Hendrix (a veteran of many American rhythm and blues and soul groups from the early-mid 1960s) and his power trios - The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys - has had broad and lasting influence on the development of blues-rock, especially for guitarists.
In the late 60s Jeff Beck, another former member of The Yardbirds, revolutionised blues rock into a sort of Heavy Rock, taking the UK and the USA by storm with his band, The Jeff Beck Group which had among its members a young Rod Stewart on vocals and an even younger Ronnie Wood on bass.
While rock and blues have historically always been closely linked, blues-rock as a distinct genre did not arise until the late 1960s.

 NothinButDaBlues Reading Room (Shhh, people are trying to read in here)
He also wrote about blues for the music papers, and was a detractor of the flashy, psychedelic and commercialized blues rock of the late 1960s, which he resented for its focus on extended solos and its fixation on Chicago blues.
Blues, more than any other musical style, influenced the birth of rock'n'roll, and the amplified electric blues of Chicago, Memphis, and other cities during the 1950s was separated from the new music only by its more traditional chord patterns, cruder production values, and narrower market.
The blues and rock'n'roll are often divided by the thinnest of margins.

 Blogcritics.org: Sunday Morning Playlist: Blues Rock
Rock 'n' roll, of course, owes its very existence to blues; it is a debt that largely went unacknowledged until the mid-1960's when a number of bands on both sides of the Atlantic began emphasizing the blues inherent in rock, creating the genre of blues-rock.
What the 60's blues-rock bands had largely in common was an adherence to the traditional three chord structure of blues coupled with instrumental improvisation; the epitome of such a band is Cream, although there were many others at the time, some remaining even more faithful to the original blues sound.
In the 80's, as the roots-rock movement was beginning to gather steam, musicians began to revisit the blues; Stevie Ray Vaughan deserves special credit for repopularizing blues-rock, and updating it for a new generation.

The Blues is often called the Devil's music for this reason, for being a place where a man can deal with all that it means to be human, free from the restrictions of social influence that seeks to deny real emotions like lust, envy and hate by calling them sins.

 The Animals’ Blues-Rock
And as American rock and roll was taken over by commercial interests and the big record labels in the late 1950s and early 1960s it was these British blues and RandB bands who helped revitalize the music.
It was “The House of the Rising Sun.” The British version of this single, released later in 1964, was at that time the longest single ever released, clocking in at 4:20 (most singles averaged 2½ to 3 minutes in length).
But perhaps forgotten by now are Freddy and the Dreamers, Unit 4+2, and the Animals – and all the other British groups which followed the headliners over, both with grueling tours and with their wannabe-hit singles, hoping that familiar American blues songs would sound fresh and new when sung in British accents.
