Country in Nashville Tennessee and Rock n roll in Memphis Tennessee. But the hard driving sound of blues rock came from the working class areas of the UK . It originated with the likes of John Mayhall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream , Procol Harum, and many more besides. So to the present it’s fair to say that Catfish can rock with the best of them.
