The Finch Files: The Legend of Les Paul

Peter explores the legend of Les Paul, the visionary who changed music forever with the introduction of the electric guitar.

From Paul and Mary Ford’s appearance on Omnibus that introduced the world to multi-track recording, to the custom guitars wielded by rock gods from Hendrix to Page to Rhodes, Les Paul left his mark on just about everything we hear today!

Bonus video:
