Why does Great Britain/United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland have the best music?

Not saying America doesn’t have great musicians (Elvis, Michael Jackson, The Doors, Prince, Aerosmith to name a few) but look who Great Britain and Ireland/UK have: The Beatles, The Who, David Bowie, Elton John, LED Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Billy Idol, U2 to name several)

      Hendrix was born in America, but the Experience is from London and that’s where Hendrix made his mark.

    🥴 Yeah. Stolen American genres.

    They may be great, but they ripped off our genres.

    Regardless, of whether or not they were better? You wouldn't have it if America didn't provide it. 😄
