Loud, Louder, Loudest

Rock music documentaries seems to be the cinematic soup du jour at the moment (ain't I talkin' fancy!)

First up here's one I really enjoyed Iron Maiden: Flight 666. I was impressed by the genuine camaraderie show by the band, and the mature attitude to personal space they have, playing golf, taking their kids along on tour, sight seeing and, yes, flying 757 jets.

Here's one not on release yet but looks fascinating, It Might Get Loud. Jimmy Page, The Edge & Jack White in an aircraft hangar, talking about guitars...

And last, one that looks funny and heartbreaking at the same time, The Story Of Anvil.
I wonder if the whole thing is a laugh at Anvil's expense, rather like the awful singers always set up to fail in the early rounds of The Pop Factor's Got Talent?
