Default Les Paul - Chasing Sound

Several Years ago, on PBS, American Masters had this wonderful documentary about Les Paul's life, his music, and his inventions. Much of the footage is interspersed with his 90th birthday party (2005) at the Iridium. A slew of artists were interviewed and contribute to the film including: Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Tommy Emmanuel, Bonnie Raitt, Richard Carpenter and more, and more.

I watch this about once a year and every year and it inspires me. The sounds that Les gets out of his guitar are beyond the pale.

Hope you enjoy this:

This is the companion video of his 90th birthday concert:

Agreed. Thanks for the reminder. I haven't watched these in a while and it would be good to see again.
