The brotherhood of the guitar

IT MIGHT GET LOUD brings together three leading guitarists from three different generations: The legendary Jimmy Page of The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, U2's sonic innovator The Edge and Jack White of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs – if not the greatest, then surely the most productive and eager guitarist of his generation.

Through extensive use of archive material, director Davis Guggenheim also tells the background stories of these three guitar luminaries. The resulting film is relaxed, entertaining, packed with good music and steeped in rock history.
