Want to know who Elvis copied? You have only to look at LINK WRAY, and after hearing his first cord you will also know the meaning of cool, fibrous rock and roll .

Saw  RUMBLE at the Rafael Theater in San Rafael, CA in 2017. I didn’t have any questions during Q & A; the film had answered questions I didn’t know I had. The creators of this long, long overdue tribute to the true roots of American music took the advice of former FLOTUS Michelle Obama: they “went high”. Much of our nation has lost its mind around morals, ethics and common decency, so thank you RUMBLE for moving past US government’s genocide and colonial hypocrisy to show the true beauty, unity and history of our country which is grounded in the stories and music—from ancient to modern—of American Indians.

A long list of music artists, historians, icons’ family members, and experts participate in the film including: Tony Bennett, Quincy Jones, Taj Mahal, Martin Scorsese, George Clinton, Steven Tyler, Jackson Browne, Iggy Pop, Slash (Guns & Roses) Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan), Steven Van Zandt, and the insuppressible Buffy Sainte-Marie.
