Jack White’s an interesting guy. I genuinely like him, though I don’t always care for The White Stripes (yet I love The Raconteurs). But I admire anyone who pushes the envelope a little, who experiments. It Might Get Loud is a documentary about the history and use of the electric guitar, focusing on White as he spend time with rock legends The Edge and Jimmy Page.
So, basically a guitar player’s dream movie.
Personally, I like how the three seem to have an easygoing camaraderie, and I’m dying to see this. I love the idea of bringing distinctive sounding guitarists together and just seeing what happens. It appears that it’s main focus is on White as the sort of New Jack guitar player, which is a solid approach. And the idea of original music featuring the three of them makes me wiggle in my seat a bit.
Though — I’m curious. What do they call “The Edge?” Edge? The? As in, “hey, Edge, I’m gonna make some egg salad — you interested?”
These are the things that keep me awake at night.
Here’s the trailer. No release date has been announced yet.
