Some Les Paul Clips

Here are a few Youtube clips of Les Paul, some with his wife Mary Ford.

Very coincidental that Les Paul died today, yesterday I read quite a bit about him at Wiki, I was researching the Steve Miller Blues band LP was Steve Miller's godfather!
Les Paul is the one responsible for Steve as a child playing the guitar, then when he graduated from high school they went to live in Texas and T Bone Walker became his teacher.
I clearly remember as an early teenager in the 50's hearing How High the Moon on BBC, it became an enormous hit, I loved it, it was such a different sound.

And the bloke who introduces the 'How High' youtube clip was another old friend, Alastair Cooke. Consider Dick Dale's playing when you listen to this.
