The most important development in the genre was the appearance of electrified blues in TheFifties, with its stronghold in Chicago. Electric blues, as represented by Music/MuddyWaters, Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon and others, was one of the first genres to adopt electric guitars and the classic guitar-bass-drums lineup, paving the way for the future appearance of RockAndRoll. {{Jazz}} is another genre which developed out of the blues. In fact, most popular music as we know it today -- from {{Soul}} and {{Funk}} to HeavyMetal and HipHop -- ultimately derives from the blues. As Willie Dixon put it, "The blues is the roots, the rest is the fruits."
