This is a link to the trailer for a new documentary "It Might Get Loud" that features Page, The Edge (U2), and White on a stage for a day--not doing a show, but just talking about music and trading licks:

It seems to be getting a very limited release.  For instance, its not showing the D.C. area until Sept. 4th and then only at one theater.

Now I don't play electric and there is not an acoustic guitar in sight, but it's definitely on my list of flicks to see!

From the White Stripes

And The Raconteurs.  And The Dead Weather.  He also had a part in the movie Cold Mountain.

That would be Mr. and Mrs. Gillis's boy, Jack. Gee you'd think, "Who the heck's "The Edge"?" would be a better question.

Excellent point. Was there ever a more eyebrow raising name to suggest that the owner of said name had better be bloody good.

   Always wondered the same about his name. But, have come to the conclusion: he IS bloody good, & then some. I have watched "Rattle & Hum" a few times this month, mesmerized by his playing. Before, just thought it was an ego thing. Might be, but he sure can back up the name! He is one awesome guitarist!

Not a bug U2 fan. One of my friends loves them. While I find Bono to be a monotone (very limited range) poser (international PC works aside), The Edge is quite something as a guitar player. Given he is not a huge technique speed freak (not a big deal in my book), he manages to create a lush backdrop for Bono. In truth I like his singing voice much better than Bono's as well. Wish he sang more.

Never got what the big todo about the White Stripes is.

The Edge gets some great grooves going but he's more of a rhythm guitar player, in my way of thinking. In the trailor he shows how, with his mountain of effects, he can get a lot out of what is really very little in the way of playing. I respect people who can create and play in the pocket like that though. It's simple but not easy to do. As for Jack White, I saw the Stripes last year and they, well, he was brilliant. The cat can really play.

   duck, have to agree about Mr. Edge. Has a command of rhythm guitar that's special. He can lay down some awesome solos too. Almost like a British Bob Weir?

I know its bad form to bump your own post, but I finally got a chance to see this movie.  All I can say is that if you love rock and roll and guitars, this movie is 90 odd minutes of pure bliss.  It's really that good.  It's part documentary with lots of old (and recent) footage and reminiscing and part impromptu jamming on a sound stage.   Jack White comes across as maybe a tad pretentious, but the Edge is completely genuine, and Page is still the coolest human being on the planet (and most modest).

What hit home for me in this movie was hearing them say what drives them to write music. To play music. listening to them tell what was the first song that 'hit home' for them...... the song that spoke to them telling them that they need to play music.

I don't think this played here in Colorado Springs.  I really want to see it.

I saw this last night. Most excellent! I loved Jack White's opening piece. Who says you need to buy a guitar? Priceless. I wanted to give them all a slap and show 'em how to play The Weight, however. I mean Evans eventually figured out the Bm but with these three hot shots, you'd think one of them would have known the intro.

Just watched it on Blu-ray last night.  Great stuff.  Would like to have seen them playing a bit more of each other's stuff, though.  I'll bet Jack White could make a passable stab at "Since I've Been Loving You", for example....

I get the impression that Jack could play anything. I'm not sure about Jimmy and The Edge was having trouble strumming The Weight.
