MORE ABOUT "RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD"
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World traces the melodies, rhythms, and beats of traditional Native music as they took different forms across the spectrum of 20th-century American rock. Native Americans such as Peter La Farge 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 Robbie Robertson, George Clinton, Taj Mahal, Slash, Jackson Browne, Taboo, Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt.
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World airs Monday, January 21, 2019, 10:00 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.
