I keep thinking the title of this thread is Bear Vs Shark. Gotta admit, at a quick glance...

No, over the past several decade there are tons and tons of British bands that are very well known over here.

I think Satchmo and Boo Boo covered this pretty well.

Well it could be argued we took Hip Hop & Jazz and invented Trip Hop.

I think when you put things in perspective The UK mops the floor w/ the US! The genre's of music that the UK doesn't excell at are the genre's that they don't really have the cultural foundation for: hip-hop, jazz, and country. Why in the hell would a Brit wanna' produce a country album? They don't wan't the sheep over there to be any more frightened than they already are!
so...because they don't have a cultural foundation for them, we're not allowed to count them? I don't think thats fair. If you play less genres of music, as a country, your talent pool is focused.

If you produce double the genres another country does, doesn't that dilute individual pools?
