• 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!


Got drafted, got out, got on with it. Was a medic, and helped with the Armed Forces Radio station as a volunteer. Had been living in San Francisco when I got inducted, so put a little KSAN into AFRTS. Came home, studied Journalism in college, graduated, worked for NPR a couple times, CBS steadily for a while, then spent a couple years working as a volunteer at eTown in Boulder after I retired from the sucky government job that paid the bills for nearly 30 years. Played in bands starting in '67 and finally learned to play in '77. Still a member of ASCAP, but turned in my AFM card after 16 years... and retired. Life is good even with arthritis. No social media, too many 'experts' on what, who, and how I'm supposed to be. Money not spent on guitars was spent on motorcycles, sportcars, 4x4 trucks and two fast women, the second having hung around for 26 years so far... nice girl, can put six rounds through a hole the size of quarter with a .41 magnum at 25 yards... Navy vet... Jersey girl... candidate for the Chicago PD in her youth, I don't cross her.
