Rumble is the electric story of how Native American influence shaped rock and roll, a missing chapter in music history.  They tried to ban, censor and erase Indian culture from rock and roll history but Native American influence is wrapped into modern music’s DNA.   An electric look at Native American influence in popular music, going deep into the Indigenous foundations of rock.  Native Americans such as Robbie Robertson and Buffy Sainte-Marie helped to define its evolution, while Native guitarists and drummers such as Link Wray — the electric guitar pioneer whose titular instrumental hit was banned from the radio, Hall of Famer Jimi Hendrix, who was part-Cherokee, Jesse Ed Davis, and many more forever changed the trajectory of rock and roll. Their stories are told by some of America’s greatest rock legends who knew them, played music with them, and were inspired by them, including George Clinton, Taj Mahal, Slash, Jackson Browne, Taboo, Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt.
