Jack White and Jimmy Page discuss their cinematic jam session
By Andy Hermann, Metromix
There’s never been a rock documentary quite like “It Might Get Loud.” Directed by Davis Guggenheim (who won an Oscar for his last doc, “An Inconvenient Truth”) the film, opening in limited release Aug. 14, brings together three of rock’s most iconic guitarists—Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, U2's the Edge and the White Stripes' Jack White—to share their personal stories and reveal the origins of some of their most famous riffs.
Part biopic and part jam session, “It Might Get Loud” portrays its three subjects not as rock stars, but as artists, striving to find new ways to express themselves through their primary instrument: the electric guitar.
As a recent press conference in Los Angeles, Guggenheim, White and Page sat down to talk about their work on this remarkable new film.
