Keith Richards, Billy F Gibbons, Steve Miller and More Say Thank You Les with Lou Pallo

Longtime Les Paul Trio guitarist Lou Pallo will honor his legendary collaborator with the the new tribute CD/DVD Thank You Les. Produced by Showplace Music Productions in Dover, NJ, and distributed in the U.S. and Canada by the Allegro Corporation, the album features a range of guests, including Keith Richards, Billy F Gibbons, Steve Miller (who also penned the package’s liner notes), Jose Feliciano, Slash, Johnny A, Bucky Pizzarelli, Arlen Roth, Nokie Edwards (The Ventures), Frank Vignola, Bob Leive, Tommy Doyle and Jon Paris, as well as singers Eddie Brigati, Jr. (The Young Rascals) Blondie Chaplin (Rolling Stones), Nicki Parrott (Les Paul Trio), Lexie Roth, Melinda Doolittle (finalist on American Idol season six) and members of the Les Paul Trio.

Pallo and Paul first met in 1963 and began performing together soon after. The musicians collaborated for years during Paul’s weekly residencies at New York’s Fat Tuesday and, later, the Iridium.

“Les was my guitar idol and I was honored to work beside him and call him my friend for so many years,” says Lou Pallo. “This tribute allows Les’ musicianship and sense of humor to take center stage giving everyone the opportunity to experience the Les Paul we knew well and the music he adored.”

Plans are in the works to celebrate Thank You Les with a CD/DVD release show in New York City featuring Lou Pallo and special guests.
