Les Paul is the Thomas Edison of pop, a self-educated electronics genius who invented virtually every technique of modern sound recording--sound-on-sound, overdubbing, echo effects, multitracking--as well as the famous solid-body electric guitar that bears his name. And his wizardry also extends to performance. This book recounts Paul's story, from his sad childhood through his chart-busting hits to the albums he's recording today with Billy Joel and Paul McCartney. Photos.
