Wagnerian rock is a musical genre that was created by Jim Steinman
due to his love for the music of Richard Wagner and Phil Spector. The genre
is a merger (almost a musical hybrid) of twentieth century Rock & Roll
and nineteenth century Opera reminiscent that of Wagner's and Spector's, and
not to say the least, with a major distinctive touch of Steinman's own
musical skills. The genre can be argued to be a subform of Rock opera.
