Les is 93 today, and still has his regular Monday night gig at the Iridium.

I just hope I'm able to even hold a guitar when I'm 93. Or recognize one. Very Happy

Happy birthday, Les!

On the occasion of the appearance of Les' Capitol Box CD Set, I interviewed him for a magazine article I was commissioned to write. Les was very informative, kind to a fault, witty, and just a perfect interview.

I was then, and continue to be inspired by Les--the man, the inventor, and the musician. He has been a tremendous force in music. He has been a super role model for me, personally, in terms of presenting music to an audience--it's the song, dummy. Think about the lyric and the melodic statement that's being made in the song and give the audience something to linger on. That, and rhythm! Chops, for their own sake, are soon forgotten. (You'd better have them, though. Les sure has had them throughout his career.)

Happy birthday, belatedly, to a great, great man.

We seem to get this about Les Paul's birthday every year at about this time.

Happy Birthday, Les.
