I saw "It Might Get Loud" again tonight. I saw it a few weeks back at the LA Film Festival. Director Davis Guggenheim, Producer Lesley Chilcott and the head editor Greg (last name is escaping me) were at tonights prime-time showing for some Q&A.

Before the film, Davis dedicated tonights screening to Les Paul and read some facts about Les from his recent obituary and pointed out how Les and his drive and innovation made it possible for Jimmy, Jack and Edge to do what they do.

As mentioned a few weeks back, after seeing Edge always playing "...Boots" on his `66 Blonde Tele, it's interesting to see him playing it on his red `66 Gibson SG while working on the tune and again in another part (while working on the tune) he's seen playing the `63 Gretsch Country Gentleman. One or both or neither may have ended up in the final mix.

Go see the film! It is great to see in on the big screen in a theatre. So be sure to see it.

Yes there will be a DVD but you should still see the released version in a theater. Nice experience.

Yes, I said it - DVD. It should be out December 29th, per Lesley Chilcott and YES there is tons of extra footage that will be 'bonus features and easter eggs', per Lesley.

One of the neat parts in the 'Summit' of all three at WB soundstage is when they all play together on each others songs. They all play "Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground" (The White Stripes), "I Will Follow" (U2, obviously) and "In My Time Of Dying" (Led Zeppelin) with all playing and trading slide guitar licks. GREAT stuff.

That said, other tunes that were filmed but didn't make the final film (and will be bonus fun for the DVD) are "7 Nation Army" (The White Stripes), "Bullet The Blue Sky" (U2) and "KASHMIR" (Led Zeppelin) - which is my second favorite song - EVER - behind "...Streets"

I got to ask a question during the Q&A and simple asked: Did you submit a list of requests of a song or three from each to work up and play with one another. Davis said no. In fact, he said that all three didn't see one another before they met on the soundstage. So there was no sharing notes amongst them ahead of time. He said he got a bit worried because at first they were talking alot - all good and part of the interview and learning about one another - but that they didn't immediately start playing together. He said he was a bit worried and then Jimmy Page reached back and grabbed his Les Paul Standard and started playing "Whole Lotta Love" which Davis said got things rolling with the playing and was like Jimmy threw the guantlet down.

There is one acoustic tune that they all played, "The Weight" by The Band. It wasn't scripted and was Edge idea to play, per Davis. They were learning it on the spot! The cool thing being that "The Last Waltz" is universally accepted as one of the best music documentary's out there. So to have a The Band tune and acknowledge that film as they aspired to make something that good, made Edge's suggestion the perfect song to end the film.

There you have it. Now mortgage a lung so you have the price for a small popcorn and go see the film - Great stuff!

Thanks for the review. I'm really happy to hear you say that this is not a stinking movie, now I'm looking forward to see it more than before. I hope it doesn't take too long to come around me (Italy).

Let's keep in touch and don't forget to upgrade this thread in case of news about the movie or the dvd.

As mentioned, the DVD will be out (per producer Leslie Chilcott) on 22nd of December. And (again, per Leslie Chilcott) there is a lot of bonus footage that will be added for the DVD.

That said, still very much worth seeing it in a theatre. Not sure when there will be a theatrical release in Europe.

Keep checking back at:
It Might Get Loud – Release Dates

Thus far the release schedule only shows US dates but I'd imagine it will get a UK/European/Australia/Japan release date.

God knows when IMGL will come to Europe (I've seen some release dates for Germany, but its premiere in my city is quite unlikely, though there's still hope), but I can't wait for the DVD.
