Better suggestions are welcome.)

Jerry Lee Lewis had with his boogie-woogie piano style much influence on the genre. Chuck Berry developed a similar style on guitar. John Lee Hooker was also a forerunner of Boogie Rock.

Boogie rock began as a sub - genre of rock and roll, but developed into its own genre.

There may be a distinction made ​​between the United States Style, Southern rock with bands such as ZZ Top and Blackfoot, and a European / Australian style with bands like Status Quo, Slade, AC / DC. The highlight was in the seventies and early eighties. Later it evolved into heavy metal genre.
