It is well known that the people of Britain, especially Liverpudlians, idolized American music. American music inspired Liverpudilians, even the Beatles themselves, to new genres and styles of music. Given all this, it is understandable that the “success in America would solidify the position of the Beatles as Britain’s greatest exponents of pop music” (Michael Frontani, 20). However, even with the recognized achievement of optimal success in Britain, once success in America was reached, the Beatles still had their apprehensions to ‘cross seas’ and essentially give America something they already had. Nonetheless, with or without their own apprehension, the US had their own hesitations themselves upon their acceptance of the Beatles in America

Having hit songs from the 1960s to his death in 2016, David Bowie is considered not only one of the greatest rock and roll artist of all time but also one of the greatest musicians ever. My mom always played David Bowie’s Greatest Hits CD in her car to the point where it is now nostalgic.

Before I learned to fluently hold the major open chords properly on guitar, I remember listening closely to rhythm guitar progressions being played on FM radio while tapping my foot to rhythm for the duration of a rock song.
