Director and producer of An Inconvenient Truth Davis Guggenheim takes on a less politically challenged source for material in his latest offering It Might Get Loud– rock guitarists. Specifically Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, The Edge from U2, and Jack White of the White Stripes are all tapped in this documentary. Talking shop about their various bands, how they each got into playing the guitar, and where and how they formed their respective signature sound are topics addressed in this film. Aside from the personal stories and histories though, the real magic happens when all three of the artists get together to talk music, share songs, and trade ideas with each other, a real treat for the rock history buffs.image_4 Unfortunately, the film doesn’t spend much time at this round table but rather spends more time with each individual and feels more like a really well put together episode of Behind The Music. To that end, Hard core fans of any of the afore mentioned artists will still find interesting and new material here, but this film still feels like more of a rental. It Might Get Loud is rated PG.
