Roberta Freund Schwartz

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the fusion of blues and rock in the 1960s heyday of what has variously been termed “blues rock,” “British blues,” or “R&B.” Describing the ways in which bands such as the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, and the Animals adopted style and lyrics from the recorded music of Chicago blues performances such as Broonzy and others, it demonstrates the revolutionary impact of the fusions that were the result of the British exposure to American blues.

Keywords:   Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, the Animals, British blues rock, fusion
