    Abstract

    This study will examine the effect the emergence of rock music from pop music had upon British culture, the stylistic development of music, the technological advancements and the industry itself. Key artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Jimi Hendrix will be discussed and their influence upon popular music assessed. Based on previous works on the topic as well as an analysis of the music from the time, suggestions will be given and discussed on the issues, which led to the emergence of rock music from pop music. The research will be gathered through books, DVDs, magazines, Internet web pages and articles. An understanding about the difference between pop music and popular music will also be made. All areas involving the contextual issues that affected British popular music will be discussed, in order to conclude a fair argument. Conclusions will be drawn on the importance of each issue that affected British popular music, with an explanation of how and why each issue developed.
