'He came from the blues...'

4 Jan 201012
'It Might Get Loud' is released to European audiences this week and Edge has been talking to The Times newspaper in the UK.

'What came out of the movie,' he says, 'was that it doesn't matter what your influences are, it's whether you are an originator. It's about attempting to express the sound in your head you can’t otherwise explain.'

The Edge one of the Greatest Guitar Play
"The Edge" is one of the most creative guitar players on the Planet. In other areas of guitar playing he knows when to keep it simple & when to be complex. He has the greatest imagination for the use of effects wether it is with Rackmount units or Pedals. Never sticks to just the same sound but is always expanding and experimenting with new soundsand techniques which is a big part of why U2 has lasted for almost 3 decades. I know you are just a Person Dave but I hope I can meet you one day and shake the hand of my favorite guitar player.

It Might Get Loud..... PURE BRILLIANCE!!
This movie is amazing, I did not stop smiling the whole way through, seen it twice now planning to see it a 3rd time and eventually buy it on DVD. Obviously, I enjoyed The Edge's history the most but Jimmy Page is certainly the guitar master and Jack White, well he is just a laugh :D Everyone should see this movie, recommend everyone to see it if you have, it is sheer brilliance a complete and utter masterpiece!!!!!

Loved It!!!
I agree....this movie should not be missed. The coolest part of the movie for me was the look on Jimmy Page's face when air guitaring Link Wray's "Rumble." Priceless. Pure fan of the guitar. The most memorable part of the DVD was one of the deleted scenes during Edge's soundcheck. No drums, bass or vocals to drown out the guitar. As a guitarist myselft it was riveting.

Edge is such a great man. I love his humour and all the wise things he has to say. He's kind of cute! :)

Great Movie
Everyone should see this movie. It is amazing. The quote about trying to express the sound in your head is what every guitar player feels.
