I finally got my dvd in the mail...thank you amazon for taking so damn long and watched it last night...my 2 1/2 daughter was TRANSFIXED...i think she is a guitar player in the making

I LOVED this movie...it was 100% right up my alley...I am a huge u2 fan and the edge is one of the reasons i picked up the guitar, but I think I especially liked page and white...

And as everyone else has mentioned in previous threads, the part where Page plays rumble record is priceless...the look on his face is like a teenager in his room listening to his favorite band...

I loved the 3 different approaches to the instrument, I loved the 3 different personalities and the mutual respect I saw...I loved the look on edges and whites face when Page played whole lotta love...White looked like he was trying to hide his big grin behind a cool facade but couldnt do it LOL...I think Page is the most down to earth and would be a BLAST to hang out with in a pub

The 3 of them playing "in my time of dying" together was cool and they all seemed to hang well...

It was a bit goofy when they played u2's I will follow...and what the hell was up with the little "mini-me" jack white was with?

All in all a great guitar movie...my admiration for all 3 grew (didnt think I could admire page anymore than I already do)

Hey this reminds me that I am gonna make my 7 year old daughter a primitive slide with one of the pickups lying around a block of wood and a string. Maybe she can take it to school and show the kids in class?

No man don't do that, it still makes for a good discussion. Actually I don't think I've ever put in my two cents worth on this movie so here goes. All three of them are obviously very talented and passionate about their music. I don't really care for Edge's high tech approach and never cared much for U2 but the guy can bring it and I respect that. JW decided to fake a tough guy persona for the movie for some inexplicable reason. Watch the DVD of the White Stripes tour of Canada to see what a nice guy he really is. I like his low tech approach and he totally negates the notion that the blues genre was completely mined a long time ago. Page, well he has metamorphosed into...um, words escape me right now, but damn, he's so cool.

A couple of more things about Page: When he was jamming on Ramble On in his amp room he had a Silvertone 1457 amp/case on one side and and a Silvertone 1432 amp on the other side. I had both of those sitting next to my TV as I watched this for the first time and that was an interesting coincidence. When he was playing the Link Wray record I think he was stoned. His eyes were glazed and he kept wiping his nose.

Okay 24 more pages to go.
Thats probably the best way imo to quickly sum up JW :)
I am going to buy some white stripes and racontours from itunes...Ive always like them, but now I am really interested in getting the catalogue and listening to entire albums...

U2 and Zeppelin already dominate my cd collection and ipods LOL

Derek Trucks
John Frusciante
Mike Einzenger

for It Might Get Loud: Part II!
Now that would be a great movie. Mike and Derek are two of my favorites and although I'm not a huge JF fan, it would be cool to learn more about him.

Let's choose

guy nobody has heard of
guy who's not even in a band, and
guy nobody has heard of

sorry - I see you've already done that.

Thanks for telling me that this was on VH1-Two more hours of my life I'll never get back-No, really, thanks... I coulda been watching G.G. Allin-Hated, and at least been entertained... Oh well, I guess they had to show something in between Weird Al's Behind the music and Fast Times

I find it hard to believe that you (or anyone else on TGP) hasn't heard of Derek Trucks.

The band that Frusciante used to be in crafted 'Under the Bridge', 'Soul to Squeeze', and a little album called Californication that you may have heard of.

I know that you're using 'nobody' very loosely...but there were thousands of people at the Incubus concert that I attended in September.

Yeah I saw some YouTube clip of it.
Maybe they did a whole documentary. If they did, I havn't seen it.
If I remember rightly it was a piece on the next generation of guitarists. Frusciante looked a little lost.

Now, I'd like to see another old wizard, huge star with questionable ability and moody newb share a room. Dave Gilmour for the wizard could be fun.

Oh I've heard of them of course - but appealing to my interests isn't how movies get made.

Here's the formula, straight from the marketing department:
  • 1x semi-retired Baby Boomer legend getting chauffeured to the studio from his country estate
  • 1x Gen X member of the "biggest band in the world" reminiscing about the early days before he played arenas
  • 1x Gen Y underground-slash-alternative hipster who cares more about how he looks than whether his guitar is in tune

So the imaginary lineups could look something like:

Paul McCartney
Dave Grohl
some emo whiner I've never heard of because I don't listen to that ****

Dave Gilmour
Kirk Hammett
some emo whiner I've never heard of because I don't listen to that ****

Brian May
Mike McCready
some emo whiner I've never heard of because I don't listen to that ****

Keith Richards
Slash
some emo whiner I've never heard of because I don't listen to that ****

etc etc.
