Yea I agree that things were started before The Beatles came along, The Beatles just proved that it was here to stay, I went into more detail about Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Elvis, Fats Domino, and guys like that in my origional post, but after it timed out and I lost all of it I really didn't want to type it all out again.
