Les Paul – The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame – Where Legends Live

 

Guitar Shop TV recently traveled to the legendary Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to speak with VP Todd Mesek, who guided us through a fascinating exhibit on Les Paul, “The Father of the Solid Body Electric Guitar,” who made the sound of rock and roll possible.

 

Paul is one of a handful of artists with a permanent, stand-alone exhibit at the Rock Hall, where he is known as an “architect” and a “key inductee.” Check out our exclusive conversation in the video above, which details the chronology of  the development of the electric guitar and the critical role played by Les Paul.
