I went American. My love for Johnny Cash will always tip the scales to the left of the pond.

I was thinking about this a while ago... and as of the past decade or so, I'd definitely go across the Atlantic... in an East direction that is.

Well, as long as the US is being slagged off, remember where it all started, it wasn't Britain.

I don't think anyone is denying that... but as of late the tables have turned, and it's raining tea and friggin' crumpets.

Tally Ho.

it isn't necassirly american started either

Most, if not all, music in america today can thank early roots blues music which the Africans brought over in the slavery years.

I am saying British music now in my vote. But, historically, it might be a different story.
Thinking of the likes of Dylan, Elvis, Robert Johnson, the great jazz players

I see RnR as a combo of the early blues from the slave years, with the folk, jazz and country/bluegrass that also developed in America. If you're talking early RnR (50's) all I know are American names-Buddy Holley, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Elvis Presley,Bill Haley and the Comets. Are there any famous British artists from this period? I'm drawing a blank.
