Les Paul is a national treasure, and if ANY of you have the chance to go 
him in NYC, i would STRONGLY urge you to go. he used to play every monday 
Fat Tuesdays, i went when i was up in NYC at the CMJ conference....sat
directly in front of him at a table by the stage. Les Paul was incredible,
played his ass off with just a rhythm guitarist (Lou Pallo, a formidable
guitarist himself) and an acoustic bassist.  Les can still play like no one
else, and after the show he takes the time to hang out with people, talk
guitar, sign stuff, etc. Les started it all for us electronic
guitarists....way back in '48....incredible!!!!
