A LOVE LETTER TO THE ELECTRIC GUITAR
on January 14, 2010
If you are a fan of music played on the electric guitar, do not hesitate another moment. BUY THIS DVD! This is a meditation on rock guitar told through the eyes of 3 very distinct artists, melded together with tastefully shot imagery and a wealth of never-before-seen personal footage and photography that paints a truly authentic portrait of each player. Make no mistake, this is not an ego trip, or a musical wankfest, it's a charming, under-stated look into the hearts of these three influential musicians whose approach and background are as different as their sounds. What I liked most was the fact that it did without all the bravado, melodrama, and sensationalism seen in most rock documentaries. As a guitar player myself...just watching Jimmy Page explain how he came up with some of Rock's most famous riffs was a rare treat. Edge's background in Ireland was equally interesting. And if you like Jack White, get ready to LOVE Jack White. He's amazing in this documentary. Best of all, there's plenty of interesting story and background to intrigue people with a mere passing interest in music, but enough meat for the most studied musician to sink their teeth into. In other words, I loved it!
