    Sempre tem uns ridículos pra dar palpites na soul music.. principalmente os roqueiros...idiotas...Se olharem para a traz e ver a história do rock...vão perceber q graças a James Brown, Jimi Hendrix... Exemplo de Rock. O rock and roll (conhecido como rock'n'roll) é um estilo de musicalidade que surgiu nos Estados Unidos no final dos anos 40 e início dos anos 50[1][2], com raízes na música country, blues, R&B e música gospel e rapidamente se espalhou para o resto do mundo.
