Les Paul, more guitar!

Les Paul is over 90 years old. His museum is soon to be built. He's still rocking out here in Wisconsin, starting with a show coming up on June 21st at the Pabst Theater. Les Paul, in a way, can be heard every time someone straps on an electric guitar. One of his first attempts at a guitar incorporated a rail from a train track. It didn't take much more tweaking and testing before he came upon the right formula for the electric guitar. He doesn't play too many shows, but they are well attended. Now, if you ask me, Les Paul should have a show for the Summerfest fans. That's a hometown hero that can showcase some of the best that Wisconsin has to offer. Less cover bands and more Les Paul is what I say.
