    For some of the people who don't "get" some of these bands and music during this era. This Documentary kind of explains what was actually going on during the '60s socially and in music..
    This is old news for some here, but I hope it sheds some light for others here. And please, no "hate".. This is just sort of a Public Service Announcement..

    I don't understand why so many videos aren't showing up on the forum. Don't know what the documentary is but the British Invasion is my favorite era of music till this day.

    Thanks for the links. IMO the Brits have owned rock n roll since the Beatles.

    I think so, too.

    Montreal is giving them a run for their money right now, though.

    I find a similar misunderstanding on the part of many about the "2nd British Invasion" - New Wave in the 80s.

    It's an interesting symbiosis with influences bouncing back and forth across the pond decade to decade. I'm sure the Brits had "American Invasions" in the same way. It would be neat to trace how each influenced the other.

    I'm sure R&B and such would have been the first "American Invasion" to the Brits before their first "invasion" to the USA.. Since they relied so heavily on those type of American artists of the day.. But yes, that would be cool to track them back and forth over the years in one organized "documentary"..

    I think the first invasion was in the 1700's.

    Not sure what records they brought with them.

    Actually 1585--but it didn't catch on, then. Ended up playing the "Lost Colony Blues"...

    What's coolest is to have experienced how pop music, and society, changed with Beatlemania and what followed shortly thereafter. The whole scenario was perfect to drive our very conservative, post WWII parents crazy too. But it also came with a dark side that's still with us today :(.
