Les Paul

The Les Paul Foundation Continues to Change Lives

The Les Paul Foundation continues to change the face of music through various grants awarded to organizations around the country. The foundation's support of Guitars for Vets, a program headquartered in Milwaukee, helps in supporting veterans who graduate from its programs obtain guitars. Throughout his life Les Paul was an innovator who invented multi-track recording and the solid body electric guitar. He was interested in music education, engineering and medical research through his entire life.

Keith Richards and Steve Miller Do More for Les

Keith Richards takes to his official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube with an exclusive “Ask Keith” video clip answering the question “What was it like to work with Lou Pallo?” on the new Les Paul tribute album, Thank You Les.

“He came up with the most perfect song”, said Richards, referring to his collaboration with Pallo on the Les Paul and Bing Crosby 1941 hit, It’s Been a Long, Long Time.  “He’s known as the Man of a Million Chords and he can find a chord for every different note you’re singing, which fascinates me.”
