The History of Rock'n'Roll
Rock'n'roll started in the USA (0) with the great black rhythm'n'-blues players: Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Chuck Berry.
Fifty years ago black and white music were two completely separate things. Chuck Berry was the first black musician (1) to cross the barrier and sell records to (2) both black and white young people. His songs were about the lives of teenagers.
Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly mixed black music with white 'country' music to create rock'n'roll.
This was all happening in the United States. But people in Britain were listening to this music (3) too . The black rhythm'n'blues singers and the best rock'n'roll stars (4) like Buddy Holly were (5) much popular in Britain than in the States.
Then, in the 1960s the British invaded America, (6) as the Americans some years before did. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who. There were concerts with tens of thousands of fans. The name of the music — rock'n'roll changed to 'rock'.
In the 1960s the style of the musicians changed a lot. The clothes of the musicians became crazy and (7) so did their hair. The guitar became (8) as important as the voice. Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton were guitarists (9) more than singers.
In the 1970s rock went in two different directions. (10) Unlike Elton John and Rod Stewart, The Sex Pistols, The Stranglers, and a few other bands started to play loud, violent music called 'punk'. Punk was also important (11) as a fashion in clothes.

Yuppies: Who They Are
The term 'yuppie' is basically an invention of the mass media, yuppies do indeed exist. On the one hand, yuppies are a result of the (1) rebellion against the antiestablishment, against the free-minded 1960s' (2) generation. But on the other hand they are a phenomenon much more complex, tied to the nation's economy.
What is a yuppie? A Young Urban Professional, making a (3) career in business. Being a yuppie is a (4) way of life. Those who want to be yuppies choose the yuppie (5) value system. They conform (6) to the society standards. They believe that money cures all ills.
Yuppies are young: in their late twenties or thirties. Yuppies are urban, and often disapprove (7) of suburban lifestyle.
Most of all, yuppies are professional: they work hard, rise quickly, and stop at nothing. Their behaviour does not (8) differ from social norms, but to most American intellectuals yuppie has negative connotation.
