According to Variety, Davis Guggenheim has completed filming on a documentary that will look at the story of the electric guitar from the point of view of three significant rock musicians: LED ZEPPELIN's Jimmy Page, U2's The Edge and THE WHITE STRIPES' Jack White.

Guggenheim, director-producer of "An Inconvenient Truth" and "Deadwood", directed and co-produced "It Might Get Loud", which Thomas Tull financed and produced. The Little Film Co. will represent the pic in Cannes.

Are you kidding?

Page... yes. :twisted:

The Edge... talented... but I wouldn't say "significant"... :?

Jack White? Get the fuck outta here... :evil:

Why not just invite the dudes from the Presidents of the USA and we can have a "played on one string" party... :lol:

I guess it kind of makes sense, since he picked 3 seperate generations of guitarists. I think he wanted to cover the guitar through the ages instead of from just one time period.

3 generations? I guess so.

Page plays like he's slept with the damn guitar beside him for 40 years. The Edge probably took a lesson or two back in the day. Jack plays like a first-grader... :lol:

I'm terrified to think of how long you think Satch has been sleeping with his guitar in that case... :shock:

I doubt his mom was that bothered by it, I'd imagine guitars are used to giving birth to their own kind, probably didn't expect Satch to pop out with it though!

The University of Surrey has conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of the University to Jimmy Page for services to the music industry. The award was made on Friday, June 20 at Guildford Cathedral. Jimmy generously signed a guitar (see photo below) which will be given away in a competition at the upcoming GuilFest festival. Surrey's involvement with GuilFest this year celebrates its innovative music programmes that reflect the diversity of contemporary musical practice.

James Patrick "Jimmy" Page, OBE is a world renowned guitarist and composer. Born in Middlesex in 1944, he grew up in Epsom, Surrey where he developed a passion for both painting and music. Throughout the 1960s he was in demand as a session musician, leading eventually to his becoming a member of THE YARDBIRDS. After various personnel changes, the band renamed themselves LED ZEPPELIN, and played under that name for the first time at the University of Surrey on October 25, 1968.

Over the next decade LED ZEPPELIN effectively redefined rock music, drawing on a wide range of influences to create a string of legendary albums which have, to date, sold over 300 million copies. LED ZEPPELIN are unquestionably one of the most important and influential rock bands ever, and the highly successful reunion concert at The O2 in 2007 shows the phenomenal interest in their music which persists today. Through his work with LED ZEPPELIN, Jimmy Page, a major creative force within the band, became universally recognised as being one of the greatest and most versatile guitarists of all time.

Away from music, he has been involved in the Action for Brazil's Children Trust, or ABC Trust. His commitment to this cause goes back to 1994 where he witnessed first hand unrest in the largest of Rio de Janeiro's shanty towns. He resolved there and then to do something to help, which led to the establishment of "Casa Jimmy," a shelter for abandoned street children, which continues to be run successfully today and has helped over 250 children to find a better life. Building on this, the ABC Trust was set up with Jimmy Page as the founding patron. In 2005 he was awarded an OBE in recognition of his charitable work, and also made an honorary citizen of Rio de Janeiro later that same year.

According to UK's Mirror.co.uk, LED ZEPPELIN's Jimmy Page will perform a duet with pop star Leona Lewis on August 24 as part of the Olympics closing ceremony in Beijing.

Hundreds of dancers from the UK will then perform ballet and break-dancing routines as the countdown to 2012 begins.

An insider said: "Having a rock god like Jimmy Page and a singer like Leona Lewis performing together for the first time will certainly be something to remember. The amount of planning is staggering. It will be truly momentous — and a fitting send-off as London takes up the 2012 challenge."
