I sometimes think that my love of music is borderline obsessive. That I might look or rather hear something that just isn’t here, I give music more importance then it deserves. If you have seen 30 seconds to mars video there is a girl that says Some people believe in god, I believe in music. Some people pray, I turn up the radio. Even though I do believe it a higher power and I am faithful. That statement could have been ripped from my brain and I wholeheartedly agree. I was fortunate enough to see a documentary last night called It Might Get Loud and I realised that maybe, just maybe I am not alone. I found three amazing men who believe and see music in the same way I see it.It Might Get Loud consists three of very different muso’s Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, The Edge of U2 and Mr Jack White of The White Stripes and the amazing music that they can make together and solo.
I was very young when my father introduced me to Led Zeppelin. It wasn’t like he sat me down in the lounge room and said You will love this music. I guess I just picked it up along the way because he would play it in the car when driving some where. Now I love Led Zeppelin in some warped way I had been voluntarily brainwashed. When I think of Jimmy Page I think of him on stage next to Robert Plant and with a double guitar in his hands. Watching this doco I saw him older gentleman, quiet but I could still see he’s love for the music and he’s talent which is the same if not better now.
I guess the premise of It Might Get Loud is to put these three men in a studio with guitars, amps and see what happens and what happens in magical. I guess It Might Get Loud will open the door to Jack White’s music just like my father opened the door to Led Zeppelin and how the album How To Disable An Atomic Bomb and their live show opened the door to U2. Will this music new and old change my life more then likely No, it won’t but with this music enrich my life absolutely
