ロックの歴史⑦

ブリティッシュ・インヴェイジョン
1964年にビートルズがアメリカ進出をはたし、全米ヒットチャートの1位から5位までを独占するという前代未聞の大成功を収める。

彼らの成功をきっかにリヴァプールのバンドブームは沸騰し,多くのバンドが登場し,ロンドンなど他の地域からも,R&B的なローリング・ストーンズやアニマルズ,また,ジェフ・ベック,エリック・クラプトン,ジミー・ペイジの3大ギタリストを擁したヤードバーズ,ハード・ロックの雄であるザ・フーやキンクスら,一つの時代を代表するバンドが,アメリカのミュージック・シーンへ参戦した。

このような,ビートルズをその頂点とする英国系バンドのアメリカ=世界進出は,“ブリティッシュ・インヴェイジョン”(英国の侵略)と呼ばれ,ここにロックは完全に世界の若者の共通語となった。
