THE MUSIC TREE

By Richie O.

 

This site is dedicated to all of the musicians of the 20th century who made Pop music what it is today. Who knows? Maybe if it wasn't for Ragtime, or Swing we wouldn't be hearing the styles of music as we know today. As a Rock musician, myself, always wondered if there were any link between Rock'N'Roll and Rags or Dixieland Jazz. Well I did a little reseach and I think I found that all of the Pop music of the 20th century has one thing in common.

 THE BLUES!
