• 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!

I enjoyed that, thanks for posting. Really good guitar tone. Paul sure has played a lot of gigs and has written some pretty successful material. :hank

I didn’t realize how much Hotter Than Hell borrowed from All Right Now!

I've been watching these, and quite enjoy the basic rock he's throwing down.

Not really a KISS super fan, but I really have an appreciation how he's stolen well, from inspirational sources.

I actually look forward to some post-KISS music from him, freed from the KISS framework and persona.

He's quite thoughtful and perceptive, as evidenced by his life lessons -

A lot of their rhythm stuff sounds like Kossoff. On the lead side there is a direct line from Kossoff to Angus Young.

I enjoyed that 100 % . Paul Stanley has a great tone on his Les Paul and that is at home without any tech support . So humble and down to earth and a fantastic front man , not to least forget he certainly knows how to play a Les Paul . Nice Guitar Paul !

This is more appropo for the vintage area, since I think that's his refinished burst. ;)

And thanks Paul from passing along some history- some of it might be common knowledge but once Paul's generation is gone so will these great stories and the heritage "tribal knowledge". Thanks for taking the time.

Similar video type of video (link attached) Ernie Ball “String Theory” Series.

He is a great rhythm player - and will be the first to tell you he is not a lead player. Understands his skill set and maximizes what he has. Has done pretty well for himself.

It’s really cool to see him play - for example “Firehouse” in the link attached. Seeing how he plays and the string bending technique he uses on the D chord with his pointer - unlocked the missing ingredient to that song for me. Just that little bend makes all the difference with that riff.

He has also said in the past that “Hotter Than Hell” was inspired 100% by “Alright Now”. Both he and Ace are huge Free Fans. Ace and Paul covered “Fire An Water” on one of Ace’s solo albums a couple of years ago.

Paul did create some historical riffs, and so did Ace. They are different types of players than the schooled players of later years. Watch some current videoes of Ace playing "fast runs". It's somewhat cringeworthy, but that's not the point. They're both very musical in their approach. Much like Keith Richards. Never a "shredder" but boy, did he (and Paul / Ace) leave a mark in rock 'n' roll history.
