Rock a Billy:
under Elvis is the "Everly Brothers"

Heavy Metal:
under Black Sabbath, "D&D" should be "Dio" -- as in Ronnie James Dio -- Tenacious D sings a song about him

Prog. Rock: "Presidents" should be "Residents"

And another one from Hard Rock to New Wave, and the two arrows to heavy metal are the wrong direction.

There is jimi Hendrix on the arrow from Psychedelic Rock to Hard Rock

To the right of Folk Rock is not roy orbison. It looks like Dave Mason or something.

Under southern rock, 3rd is ZZ Top

Arrow from british invasion to Pop Rock is missing.

Also, who really did this graphic?

Replace "R&B" by "Rib". I THINK Rib is an actual genre of music. Well i'm sure little richard is not R&B (as far as i know R&B)

Hey All:

I'm not a rock geneology expert, but I have friends that are and therefore being somewhat of a graphic artist I decided to re-create Dewey's Chalkboard using Adobe Illustrator. I've actually recreated it poster size (36 x 22) as a gift for someone. The translation and redrawing currently posted isn't bad, but there are some mistakes. I've also recreated it like an actual chalkboard using a "chalk-like font" on a dark green slate. I am still missing a few entries adjacent to the left of Southern Rock and some to the right of Pop Rock.

Wasn't easy to find the additions, but the longer you stare at the thing, the more it becomes clear. Also, typing the genre and what you think might be the entry into GOOGLE is a good way to find the answer. Anyway, the errors in the recreation are as follows:

1) Under Hip Hop - Barry E. Flack - is really Doug E. Fresh. Also, under Eric B. is Boggie Down Productions.

2) Above Jackson Browne is Credence Clearwater Revival

3) I think next to Pop Rock, the 1st and 3rd entries are Beach Boys and Elton John respectively. (not sure though)
