The British are Coming: Forgotten Impacts of the British Invasion, 1964-present

Description

If asked to name the greatest rock artists of all time, many people rattle off the names of four-piece rock bands consisting of British white men who flourished in the 1960s and 70s, and again in the late 70s and 80s with punk and New Wave. Yet, at the same time, many people know rock music originated in the American South as a hybrid of R&B and country music, with the influence of the blues ultimately dominating. Given that British pop had virtually no presence in America - or in the UK -  before February, 1964, how did it become so omnipresent, and how were artists and culture impacted "Back in the U.S.A.?"
