Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
This week I listened to the Fillmore East record for the zillionth time - the ABB might have been the best live band of all time...what a stellar outfit they were.
I met Gregg once backstage in the late seventies after a concert and complimented him on his solo album that had just been released. I was amazed by his kindness and humility, and him taking time to come out of his dressing room just to talk to a spotty high school kid. RIP Gregg.
Heaven just got a lot better though! I was fortunate enough to see them in all their glory back when I was young. With brother Duane and Dickey and all. I will never forget it. Huge effect on a young punk like me! It was awesome.
