It was a form of art that spoke out to them, the joys, the sorrows, the pain, and of course, the hope. It was all about the spiritual journey, and it was established as the music for the slaves. Blood, Pain, and Love played a crucial part and were the primary outlet for expressing themselves for many years; Jazz, Boogie Woogie, Jive, and because of Little Richard became Rock N’ Roll that people all over the planet could identify with.

Have a listen to Bon Scott preach Rock N’ Roll

Here’s the Lyrics;

In the beginning

Back in nineteen fifty-five

Man didn’t know about a rock ‘n’ roll show

And all that jive

The white man had the Smoltz

The black man had the blues

No one knew what they was gonna do

But Tchaikovsky had the news

He said

Let there be sound

There was sound

Let there be light

There was light

Let there be drums

There was drums

Let there be guitar

There was guitar

Oh, Let there be rock

And it came to pass

That rock ‘n’ roll was born

All across the land every rockin’ band

Was blowing up a storm

And the guitar man got famous

The businessman got rich

And in every bar there was a super star

With a seven year itch

There were fifteen million fingers

Learning how to play

And you could hear the fingers picking

And this is what they had to say

Let there be light




Let there be rock

One night in a club called “The Shaking Hand”

There was a ninety-two decibel rocking band

And the music was good and the music was loud

And the singer turned and he said to the crowd –

Let there be rock

And after that just a lot of folks were rocking it, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and even the Fats Domino, so on and so forth, the rest was history.
