Product Notes

In 2006, on his 90th birthday, the famed axman Les Paul's friends came out to honor his place in rock-and-roll history at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. With performances from Slash, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Buddy Guy, Joe Satriani, Kenny Wayne Shephard, Steve Lukather (Toto), Neil Schon (Journey), Edgar Winter, and many more. Some of music's biggest names come together to honor the ultimate icon Les Paul. The night is headlined by show-stopping numbers from an all-star slate of Paul disciples, with Slash and Edgar Winter teaming up on the Stevie Wonder staple "Superstition;" Toto axeman Steve Lukather's rendition of Jimi Hendrix "Little Wing;" and Joe Perry and Buddy Guy closing the night with a soulful blues set. Other highlights include spirited performances by Joe Satriani, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Neil Schon, and more. As part of the night's festivities, A TRIBUTE TO LES PAUL LIVE also features rare commentary taken from Paul's final interviews before his death, recorded at New York's landmark Iridium jazz venue, as well as at Paul's home in Mahwah, New Jersey. The special event was held to raise funds and awareness for the South Central charity A Place Called Home, designed to give at-risk youth a safe and secure environment they can thrive in. The program is produced by HDNet in Association with In Touch Entertainment and Icon Television Music, Inc., who is also handling worldwide distribution. Directed by Evan Haiman (Rock & Roll Road Trip w Sammy Hagar) Produced By - Charles Carlini (Les Paul's 90th Birthday Concert at Carnegie Hall), Bob Cutarella (Les Paul & Friends), Howard Lipp (need a credit here), Glenn Aveni (Les Paul Chasing Sound). Michael Braunstein, Executive Director of the Les Paul Foundation stated - "It is without a doubt that Les Paul is the 'Father of Modern Music' and that musicians from every corner of the globe and in every genre of music stand upon his shoulders. He was an inventor, an award-winning musician, and an innovator of the recording industry. The artists and producers who have made this tribute program possible give us every reason to remember that Les Paul was a man who influenced our music industry profoundly. I am thrilled that viewers worldwide will witness Les' greatest attributes through the performances and storytelling of this program."
