I question whether the "folk scare" would have happened, at least to the extent it did, except for rock going into the doldrums primarily because of Elvis's temporary, and Buddy's permanent, absence; until the funny looking Brit quartet showed up.

It could have been so much worse, though - if Waylon hadn't given up his seat...
