Chapter 1: The Birth of Rock

Jimi Hendrix grew up in Seattle in the 1950s, and learned music in bars, influenced by musicians and bands such as Howlin 'Wolf, BBKing, and Muddy Waters.

Former Former Animals member Eric Burdon says Hendrix wasn't popular in the US because he was black, and black blues wasn't popular there.

Meanwhile, the English music scene was trying to play the American blues records; Bands like The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, among others, began to copy American Blues presentations and enrich it to create one of the most characteristic sounds of the last half of the 20th century.
