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!

You may have already seen this movie on TV and think why should I buy it?

Well 2 reasons:

1. The Blu-ray quality is worth the price.
2. There is almost 30 minutes of out takes that could have all been in the movie (except for about 15 seconds - you will know when you see it) plus the movie Press conference is fascinating (Jack White could do stand up).

If you haven't seen it - I feel sorry for you. It is one of the best music documentaries that you will ever see. I won't spoil it by telling you what is in the movie - JUST BUY IT!!!!

Évidemment je suis un fan et guitariste amateur. Voir et entendre Jimmy Page commenter ses influences musicales est une rare chance. Les 3 musiciens (J. Page / The Edge / Jack White) parlent candidement de leurs influences, de ce qui les allument, sous l'oeil attentif d'une caméra souvent discrète et effacée.
Si vous êtes musicien ou simplement amateur de musique, ce film est une occasion d'aller à la rencontre de 3 muisiciens en totale symbiose avec leur instrument.

This isn't just a good documentary about's just a flat out good documentary period. You don't have to be a music historian to appreciate the stories being presented in this film. It's about three guys and why they love the guitar. Pure and simple.

Warning: If you're a music snob that hates everything made after 1979 than this may not be the movie for you. Jimmy Page's screen time only takes up 1/3 of the film. Your best bet is to watch a Zeppelin DVD and go relive your glory days.

The Edge and Jack White's back story are fantastic. They are both engaging characters. Getting to know them and learning how they create their sounds was a treat.

i saw this documentary once by accident, i came into the middle of it, and i couldn't leave the tv screen at all! i bought the dvd and it is truly the best rock documentary i've ever seen of these three guitarists. i never really knew jack white and after seeing this story i think he's great. the footage of led zeppelin when talking about jimmy page is fantastic! the edge reveals just how he gets those haunting guitar sounds, quite suprising to me actually. the length of the movie is perfect, you just want to keep watching more. i could not leave the couch when i put the dvd on. have snacks and drinks ready at your side, to pause it would just be crazy! and like the title, it does get loud!

Excellent idea to get these three together. You can tell they all come from different angles but appreciate each others musicianship and their bodies of work.

Page just blows me away, just oozes cool. Jack White is on another planet as far as how he approaches music - and that is a great thing. Would love to be in a small club and just see him jam with a bunch of artists. If have always liked U2 but not given the Edge enough credit with his playing. He is the technology master - what a pedal board! I get confused with 2 let alone an entire board of pedals and other effects.

Really pleased with the purchase.

A good movie. Impressive to see how Jack White can craft a song in minutes!

The meeting of the players gives to the viewer a too few moments of great music

A must see for the musician

great backround info on all three guitarist ,some amazing archival photos , tv imterviews in the case of Jimmy Page that he obviously kept and a real personal sense of being at ease with all three artists. their interaction turned out to be fantastic.
They clearly connected as musicians and also as individuals. if there is some kind of soundtrack that comes out of their
performances in front of one another and together at the end I would buy it in a heartbeat . Turn up the volume for this !

Moments of interest, but not enough, nor a cohesive doc...

A suprisingly flat movie, with only a few moments really worth seeing...

Also, The Edge is definitely the weak leg in this stool -- this movie wobbles in several respects...

I found this to be an informative film featuring three very different musical icons. From the twangy roots style of Jack White to the heavily processed sound of the Edge to the heavy rock blues style of Jimmy Page. They looked as though they enjoyed this as much as I did! I think I will have to watch this numerous times to catch all of the details and truly appreciate the rocumentary. Great value for the money!
