A Little More Les - Hardcover
- Over the last 18 years of his life, Les Paul -- inventor, musician, and rascal of a man -- phoned Chicago radio legends Steve King and Johnnie Putman each week, and spent an hour or so talking about his remarkable life. This book includes the "best of" over 60 hours of his interviews, as well as personal accounts from Duane Eddy, Charlie Daniels, Doyle Dykes, Tommy Emmanuel, Muriel Anderson and many more of guitar picking's elite. Readers will experience numerous "I didn't know that!" moments as they read Les's stories. (Did you know that he created the "chipmunk" sound that became the voices of David Seville's "Alvin and the Chipmunks"?) It's fun and fascinating reading about one of the most important men in modern American music recording.
