Hey it’s Scott Alan,
A yearlong celebration marking guitarist Les Paul’s 100th birthday kicks off June 9th in Times Square.
First up will be Neal Schon from Journey accepting a proclamation from the Les Paul Foundation declaring June 9th Les Paul Day.
An exhibition called Les Paul’s Big Sound Experience will then open to the public for one day before going on a national tour. Also, a Les Paul memorabilia exhibition will run at the Hard Rock Cafe New York until June 15th.
Les Paul died in 2009 at the age of 94.
