In terms of rock n’ roll, its hard to find a state more involved than OK. Musician Bob Dunn is widely considered the first musician to successfully electrify his guitar, and back in the heydey of rock, the state was a destination for touring bands in America. Led Zeppelin even performed in OK three times in the 70’s.
