Famous Names - Rock Singers

Though rock and roll music had its underpinnings in the United States during the late 1940s, it rapidly spread to other parts of the world. While it was initially inspired by jazz, rhythm and blues, and country music, it has diversified into many sub-genres. Some of the popular sub-genres are punk rock, heavy metal, and more recently, digital electronic rock.
