AT HOME WITH LES PAUL: Jim Beckerman of NorthJersey.Com has a nice profile of the father of the electric guitar, who recently turned 88, and continues to play every Monday night at New York’s Iridium Club. (I only hope I’m as active–or as sharp–when I’m 88!)

For my profile of Les, written last year just before his 87th birthday, click here.

If you’re at all interested in American popular music, you owe it to yourself to stop by the Iridium Club to see Les play, if you’re in New York on a Monday Night. He’s a tremendous entertainer, and a marvelous guitarist (gee, there’s a shock!) who can still work a crowd like nobody’s business.
