• 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!

Happy Birthday to Paul Kossoff

I recently caught your rendition of the same tune on Pallonia when you asked Paul Rogers to the stage. You rocked it Joe.

Free had the most original flow to their songs.As good of a soloist he was,Kossoff's chordal voicings are very underrated.

Joe; Thanks Brother!! Terry Wilson, who was in "Back Street Crawler" has been a friend of mine for 20 years. He also lives about 5 minute from me. Everytime he comes over I have to ask him another Kossoff question or two.
Happy Birthday Paul! Been a fan since I first heard you in 1969!

Happy Birthday Paul. I discovered the true Free 20 years ago via my dad's music collection and since then they have become my favourite band and Paul remains my favourite LP player and along with Rory Gallagher and Angus Young, one of my greatest guitar heroes and influences.

This forum has so much love for Paul and his work, it is great to know that his work and legacy lives on. :2zone
