"It's depressing to have a label come and tell you that ['Guitar Hero'] is how kids are learning about music and experiencing music," White said at an L.A. press conference Friday for the upcoming Davis Guggenheim documentary, 'It Might Get Loud.'

"You think of the drum part that John Bonham did on Led Zeppelin's first track on the first album, 'Good Times, Bad Times,'" he said. "How many drummers in the world can play that part, let alone on Christmas morning?"
