Access All Areas: Les Paul Tribute

From Access All Areas, 5:00 pm on 22 August 2009

Guitar virtuoso and inventor Les Paul passed away 13 August 2009 aged 94. Les Paul was not only a brilliant guitarist but also one of the pioneers of the multi track recorder. His number one single How High The Moon recorded in his garage in 1951 with Mary Ford stopped the recording industry in it's tracks. For Access All Areas Trevor Reekie talks to Patti Smith's guitarist Lenny Kaye about the incredible genius of Les Paul.
