Synopsis:
Did music change the world? "Rockin' the Wall" answers with a chord-crashing, "Yes!" A look at rock's subversive, relentless, and often humorous role in bringing down the Iron Curtain, with appearances by rockers Mark Stein and Vinny Martell (Vanilla Fudge), David Paich (Toto), Mother's Finest, and many more, this historical look at the power of music to transform society is as timely today as it was in 1989. Or, as Rudy Sarzo of "Quiet Riot" put it, "The truth in one big power chord!".
Based on the best-selling book, 'Seven Events that Made America America' by Larry Schweikart, 'Rockin' the Wall' features interviews with witnesses from behind the Iron Curtain whose lives were changed, and often challenged, by rock music. With original new music and new performances of some rock classics in its powerful soundtrack, from the first notes, 'Rockin' the Wall' doesn't let up until the Wall comes down!
