I like the Beatles but they didn't create it. The people who say this should tell Chuck Berry - BrianScott01
No. But they were instrumental (no pun intended) in it's development. As to Chuck Berry, rock is NOT interchangeable with rock 'n' roll, which is an offshoot of blues. And Chuck invented neither.

5 Bob Dylan - "His singing is crap. But his song writing is amazing"
Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .
Yah...I hold my hands up and admit that I have said this. I DO like Dylan; his songwriting IS amazing BUT his voice...he sounds like an inebriated something slurring to a dog peeing against a tree. It's like having a fantastically written novel being read out loud by someone who is illiterate; it dilutes the genius. - Britgirl
Not in his early career, but in the 80's his voice was terrible. Especially on Empire Burlesque. - BrianScott01
He sounds like Lou Reed but a bit older and trying harder. - djpenquin999

"Greatest singer of all time"? Who said that, Freddie Mercury? - Britgirl
9 Chuck Berry - "The real king of Rock n Roll"
Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. He died on 18 March 2017.
I agree with this one. - BrianScott01
This is really arguable. He and a few other mentionables were largely responsible for the popularization of rock 'n' roll, but the "king" title is wholly symbolic, and representative neither of talent nor uniqueness nor of true pioneer status.
He is, isn't he? - Britgirl
