Two days before the first public screening of “It Might Get Loud” in Los Angeles, at least two of the film’s stars were in town. It is likely both Jimmy Page and Jack White will stick around long enough for the Friday evening screening of their film, taking in the flick yet another time before its widespread theatrical distribution in August.
Don’t expect a full reunion of the three guitarists starring in “It Might Get Loud.” Unlike at the world premiere in Toronto last year, when all three attended and participated in a public question-and-answer session, this time, The Edge is in Barcelona, where he is with the rest of U2 preparing for the 360 tours, which is set to open in less than two weeks.
Page’s frequent travelling companion, photographer Ross Halfin, details the events of the June 14 flight they shared into Los Angeles on his blog. Halfin then discusses the concert he and Page attended at the Roxy last night.
- The band was the Dead Weather, which consists of Alison Mosshart on vocals and Jack White on lead guitar and occasional vocals. An L.A. Times blog by Ann Powers mentions Page’s presence at the show, saying he “was the show’s most whispered-about attendee.” Luckily for Page, the blog says, his “It Might Get Loud” co-star didn’t fail to “invoke” (might she mean “evoke”?) Led Zeppelin during the hour-long set.
- The Dead Weather is scheduled as tonight’s musical guest on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” Their album, Horehound, is expected to drop July 14.
