Holy cow. Two things I love – documentaries and documentaries about music|instruments. Just heard about the trailer for the upcoming Cry Baby movie titled: “The Pedal That Rocks the World“. This documentary is about the #1 selling effect of all time, the Dunlop Cry Baby wah. Based on the trailer, it’s talking to the inventor/builder to players. The reason of it’s success and the reason of it’s birth. Great stuff. Looks like an amazing cast:
Eddie Van Halen, Jerry Cantrell, Slash, Buddy Guy, Kirk Hammett, Zakk Wylde, Dweezil Zappa, Eddie Kramer, Paul Gilbert, Bob Bradshaw, Brad Plunkett, Wah Wah Watson, Jim Dunlop, Jimmy Dunlop, Jasmin Powell plus more!
The film is by Guard House Pictures and release date will be Feb 2011. Can’t wait! Here is the trailer (posted by crybabydoc):
