    finally saw "It Might Get Loud" last night

    my thoughts: 1. why did they invite Edge? edit ALL of his face time OUT of the movie and instantly it's a better movie. he added nothing and he doesn't play guitar, he plays effects pedals. 2. Jimmy Page added barely more than Edge. Page won't talk (tell secrets) and he hasn't for 40 years...
