Did anyone catch this special ?

"The life of renowned jazz-country-blues guitarist and guitar innovator Les Paul will be honored in the star-studded concert film “A Tribute to Les Paul,” which airs this Sunday, June 18 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on AXS TV. The 2006 special was taped in celebration of the late music pioneer’s 90th birthday at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.

A huge lineup of rock legends pay homage to the man who left an indelible mark in the music and guitar-building industries. Some of them include Slash, Buddy Guy, Joe Perry and more. There can be no better way to honor Les Paul’s iconic musical contributions than with a night of mind-bending guitar solos, blues, and classic rock. The special will also include some of Paul’s final interviews.

Les Paul was not only a phenomenal, Grammy-winning songwriter and musician, but he made huge strides as an inventor. In fact, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2005 for crafting the solid-body electric guitar. He was also among the first artists to use certain recording techniques including overdubbing, tape
delay and multitrack recording. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and received the National Medal of Arts from President George W. Bush in 2007" ... on--119718

Joe Perry, Buddy Guy, Slash, Steve Lukather, Neil Schon, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd were there.

I just happened to be flipping around and caught it 11 minutes in. It's rerunning at 12:40AM set your DVRs.

Back during the Arrival sessions in NYC, NS played with Les Paul during his Monday night jazz thing at the Iridium. There were a few stories about it, maybe some video somewhere. I think LP gave Schon a signature guitar.

There was also a 100th Anniversary thing a couple of years ago. Several postings on this forum about it. ... n-20150610
