Great Music, Great Musician

Just bought a great CD, and one anyone who likes Guitar Rock should buy. The CD, American Made, World Played by Les Paul and friends is an incredible display of guitar talent; and that's just by 90 year old Les Paul, the father of the solid body electric guitar.

Included on CD are Steve Miller, Eric Clapton, Sting, Joss Stone, Edgar Winter, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Rzeznik, Billy Gibbons, Richie Sambora, Keith Richards, Rick Derringer, Joe Perry, Buddy Guy, Steve Lukather and Peter Frampton, among others.

For those who think he's just a name on a guitar, Mr. Paul is really the father of guitar rock, 8 track recording, and a host of other electronic innovations starting in the 1930's and still going today.

He's in the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame (with Edison), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has Grammy awards not only for recording, but for technical innovation. He also holds patents on electric guitar pickups and designs, mult-track recorders and a number of other ideas.

Keith Richards summed it up in the liner notes "It has to be said, we must all up that without Les Paul, generations of flash little punks like us would be in jail or cleaning toilets. This man, by his genius made the road that we still travel today."

So, if you need so good guitar rock, and want to hear a legend with his disciples, check out Les Paul and Friends.
