Wray eventually took all that rage of his early years and crafted a 1958 instrumental hit "Rumble" using a distinct, distorted electric guitar sound that would influence rock 'n' roll musicians from Iggy Pop and Neil Young to Pete Townshend of The Who and Slash of Guns N' Roses.Wray is one of many Native Americans musicians whose stories are featured in a documentary set to air on the PBS series "Independent Lens" showing how Native Americans helped lay the foundations to rock, blues and jazz and shaped generations of musicians.
