'Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World'

It's rarely something that comes up in your Rock 101 books and from-Elvis-to-Sex-Pistols history lessons: the major influence of Native Americans on popular music. Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana's documentary helps to fill in the gaps by highlighting how various indigenous musicians from Charlie Patton to Buffy Saint-Marie, Link Wray to Robbie Robertson, played a huge part in the development of jazz, blues, folk, hip-hop and every strain of rock imaginable. Everyone from Martin Scorsese to Rolling Stone's own David Fricke weigh in; you'll even hear Hendrix's version of 'The Star-Spangled Banner" (he had Cherokee blood in his veins) in a new light.
