First of all, thx for the .*pdf format.

It would be important for the author to say that all this happens in the West, in which geographies: 'USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom'.

But, what about what came from Germany, Sweden, Norway and traveled around the world, doesn't it count? Note that if you consider the Countries 'USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom' it just represents a small part of the globe, only the USA and UK are very small in relation to the rest of the planet.

This book was published in 2023, so things start from the author's point of view from 1973.
It seems to me that what was at the top of the Billboard is here, but this is just geographical, it is very successful in one country but not in others.

The musical influence since the The end of the Beatles in 1970, which influenced the entire world, without forgetting the influence of Woodstock in 1969.

Lack of information:
The influence and success of ABBA from Sweden beginning in 1972 was not mentioned.
The success of the Italian band Gazebo with the song "I Like Chopin" played on all radio stations across the entire planet.
The Norwegian band a-ha played on all radio stations around the globe.

One of the songs that was not successful in the USA, but exploded all over the world was by the Welsh singer 'Bonnie Tyler' with the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart", which became at the top of radio stations across the globe.
The band 'Creedence Clearwater Revival' has influenced many bands around the world, bands that most of us never heard of.
The Canadian 'Bryan Adams' had more success worldwide with the song 'Heaven' than with 'Everything I Do', which was only widely played because of the movie, but never achieved the worldwide success of 'Heaven', which is why I say, be careful with geography and Billboard.

About the word Style, be carefull to use it, the author of this book used correctly:

Style is a word that comes from Greek (Ancient Greek tool that gave the cut, the shape), in the English language the most perfect translation is Design.

It's even easier when we remember what we learned from biology and genetics, when there are differences between phenotype and genotype.

Phenotype is DESIGN, the style of each face, the design of each one.
Genotype is the essence from which things arise, the gene.

"... of their signature musical style" Better: (... of their signature musical genre
"...Michael's unique vocal style" or (...Michael's unique vocal design)

I was going to dive into a whole big thing, but decided not to. I'll just point out a few things, first that it's interesting, mentioning that Gazebo and a-ha have been played all over the globe, while there's a thousand bands that, like them, have had one song that made it into the spotlight for a twelve minutes and are only ever pulled up when a movie needs an era soundtrack, or someone gets too drunk at karaoke and chooses the wrong song due to Double Vision. And incidentally, though I have no idea how commercially successful it was here, Bonnie Tyler's one hit is well-known in the states. And everyone is still trying to forget whatever ABBA did, with them being best remembered for being one of Yngwie Malmsteen's inspirations (oddly enough.) Which leads me into my final bit, that "I can say that the 'Heavy Metal' musical genre did not make use of the synthesizer [...]" is one hundred and twelve percent incorrect. I'd cite examples, but I'd be here all night.

Thank you for giving us your precious comments, Hans Irgend Blumenfeld. Yes, this fallacy that “History is written by conquerors” causes a series of cognitive and historical distortions.
