The world of modern music just wouldn't be the same without the innovations of Les Paul, and in addition to inventing the electric guitar and pushing the boundaries of music with his "echo" (now known as "reverb") experiments, Paul also perfected the now commonplace practice of multi-track recording. In addition to his experiments with the electric guitar and modern recording techniques, Paul was also an accomplished jazz musician and star of the popular '50s television program Les Paul and Mary Ford. In this extended interview that also offers abundant clips of Paul performing and experimenting, the groundbreaking musician discusses his prophetic view of the music world -- a view that would have a lasting effect on generations of musicians.
