he rebellious tone and image of American rock and roll and blues musicians became popular with British youth in the late 1950s. While early commercial attempts to replicate American rock and roll failed, the trad jazz-inspired skiffle craze,[2] with its "do it yourself" attitude, was the starting point of several British acts that would later be part of the "invasion". Young British groups started to combine various British and American styles. This coalesced in Liverpool during 1962 in what became known as Merseybeat, hence the "beat boom".[3][4][5][6] In 1962 "Telstar", an instrumental by The Tornados became the first U.S. number 1 single by a British rock act.[7] Also that year the folk trio The Springfields featuring Dusty Springfield cracked the U.S. top 20.[8]
