From Roy Brown's recording of "Good Rockin' Tonight" in New Orleans in 1947 through the musical revolutions of the 1960s and beyond, Louisiana played a major role in the rock and roll explosion that captivated the world. During these pivotal years of popular music history, some of rock and roll's most notable founding fathers - Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and Ray Charles, for example - were in Louisiana recording the records and performing the music that would forever change the American landscape.
