After the success of the Beatles in Britain from 1962 there were a number of great bands that came onto the scene in the 60's. They included Gerry & the Pacemakers, the Searchers, the Spencer Davis Group, the Moody Blues and The Monkees.
Probably the 'Beatles'. But there were SO many good groups at the time, we were spoilt for choice!
The various groups' songs were different to just rock 'n roll.
'Friday On My Mind', 'The House of the Rising Sun', 'Good Vibrations', etc etc etc.
Those were the days!
