The first is the one that everyone knows about, it featured The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Hermans' Hermits amounst others.
So for this first invasion from 1963 to 1969 we have...
Mic Jagger and the Roling Stones, the bad boys from across the pond, they did everything wrong and everyone loved them for that.
This was one of my favorite songs and singers from the 1960s' Anyone else remember this song?
The Second English Invasion was in all reality a continuation of the first, it began in the mid 1960s' and ran into the mid late 1970s'
Now for me the English Invasion is any part of the Empire under the flag of the mother country, so this first group should be no surprise by that definition. Here we have The BG's from Australia.
Take a look at the members of the band. You may be surprised by one member.
In the 1980s' we had the 3rd English/ British invasion
This group came back big in the 1980s' that being THE MOODY BLUES.
There was a fourth English invasion, and yes, you guessed it, it was in the 1990s.
Last song from the 1990s' from another group from Liverpool.
Hope you enjoyed my extended look at the English and British Invasion. Please note I still have a half dozen more groups and singers that I did not get to, so I will be coming back to this at another time.
Have a musicaltastic week.
