The beginning of rock and roll started in about 1930s and 1950s. There is no real for sure date when it started because it was something that know one had really started. It was a genre of music that was created by a mixture of white music and black music. Early rock and rollers such as Lttle Richard and Chuck Berry took blues, jazz, country, and swing to make a new type of music that would soon storm the world. If you've heard of Elvis Presley you probably heard that he started rock and roll, but even he admitted that he didn't start rock and roll. People say that he took rock and roll and got it out into the world. He said that he was inspired by the early rockers before him. As a child he grew up listening to gospel and jazz. Rock & Roll had no distinct time but a lot of people have got this music out there for people to know.
