Blues music unplugged to become folk music, and then folk music plugged partially back in to become psychedelic rock music. At the same time the religions of the east began to influence the musicians, the instruments of the east began to influence the music. The drugs began to influence the musicians as well. Musicians like the Beatles, whilst heretofore primarily a pop band, now sought to use their music to evoke not only the LSD experience, but also the benefits of meditation. By combining the sounds of a sitar with that of a fuzz box and electric guitar, the peculiar, other-worldly sounds that emanated forth seemed to go so well with the feelings and thoughts generated on an acid trip or a marijuana high, and so, psychedelic rock music was born. one of a kind acts like Jimmy Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, and Pink Floyd would soon follow to change the landscape of music forever.
