Flying V / Documentary to tell the story of the iconic guitar
25 August 2020
A new documentary is soon to be released which celebrates the iconic guitar The Flying V. Part of the Inside Metal series and produced by Peter Hansen and Michael Denner, the film tells the story of the guitar’s origins and includes many interviews with guitarists who helped to make the Flying V one of the most identifiable shapes in Metal.
Released 11 September, the film includes commentary from Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield, Kerry King, Michael Schenker, Michael Denner, Hank Sherman, Wolf Hoffmann, KK Downing, Mathias Jabs, Richie Faulkner, Andy Sneep, Brian Tatler, Andy La Roque, Andy Powell and Michael Amott.
Mark ‘Weissguy’ Weiss told us: “Whenever I saw the Flying V on stage I knew it was going to be a killer show – I love photographing the V.
How could you not? – It screams Rock ‘N’ Roll! It has a presence all to its own. If I were to rate the Flying V, in the words of the TAP, I would give it an eleven. One louder!”
