The Beatles put a lot of guitars in youngsters hands, both here and abroad after being on Ed Sullivan. They shook the world, and it's still shaking.

The Sir Douglas Quintet (from San Antonio) supposedly came up with their name to sound British
San Francisco band Beau Brummell did the same thing, taking their name from a British guy.
The BBs were an American band who happened to name themselves after an Englishman (a notorious fop/dandy of the Regency period)

The SDQ actually masqueraded as English, at least for a time. Supposedly their first album (not a compilation despite the title) had the cover photo done in silhouette in order to hide the Mexicans.

re: The British invasion
After their single "I Want Candy" became a hit in the late summer of 1965, The Strangeloves put out an album.



Press releases explained that The Strangeloves were three brothers from Australia. Miles, Niles, and Giles Strange had given up sheep farming in order to start a rock and roll band.

It was all a lie.

The Strangeloves were NYC writer-producers Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein, and Richard Gottehrer, who'd previously hit #1 w/ "My Boyfriend's Back".

The NYC session group Crazy Elephant had one hit (the classic "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin', w/perhaps the most incompetent-- er, I mean avant-garde guitar solo in top 40 history) and were initially promoted as being a group of Welsh coal miners.

The Beatles and Stones were really the only bands from the first wave that were superior to their American contemporaries.

The Brit bands were copying the black bands that american radio stations wouldn’t play. White radio producers were still pushing big band crooners, doo-wap, elvis, and modern jazz. British bands came in riffing on Wilson Pickett, Buddy Guy, Little Richard, and Ike Turner and those radio stations gave them airplay because they were more “palatable”.


Skiffle music

re: The British invasion
The American scene in the late 50's and early sixties was pretty bad. When you have people like Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Lesley Gore, etc., making the charts that speaks volumes. Thank God for the Brit Invasion and the rise of the Beach Boys and Motown.

You also had Fats Domino, Roy Orbison & Elvis on the charts.

But no doubt the British Invasion ignighted the Rock & Roll scene.

Myth

Rockabilly died, killed by the popularity of Frankie, Fabe, and other teen idols. But the mass media has never been comfortable w/anything too country anyway.

But there was great doo wop and vibrant R&B scenes in NO and Detroit, as well as great music from the Brill building in NYC. It may have lacked the raw intensity of early rockabilly and R&B, but technically it could equal any pop music ever produced.

And Leslie Gore made some pretty good records!

As I recall folk music was very popular in the late 50s and early 60s. My oldest brother loved the Kingston Trio and then Dylan.
