User Reviews

 
Excellent film including stories and performances by great musicians!
19 August 2017 | by lesliematlenSee all my reviews

This movie blew me away. Not only do you see the evolution of rock and roll, you see it's influence on other genres and performances by some of the great musicians of all time.

You also see the targeting of Native American cultures in our early history, which is a story that is still rarely told,and one of our greatest crimes.

For many reasons, you MUST see and share, this movie.
