In 1965, at the onset of the British Invasion, the kids were ready for a shift in the music they could all their own. The 1950’s had changed the culture and the music with the advent of rock ‘n’ roll with Elvis, Buddy and Jerry Lee Lewis. There was a rebellious attitude that seeped into the mindset of the youth of the day. After Elvis joined the Army and around 1960 the trend softened with the Bobbys, Frankies and Johnnies singing more love ballads. So in 1964 the timing was right for a new kind of music, a new style and attitude.
