According to The Plain Dealer, former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash was on hand Saturday night (November 15) at Cleveland's Playhouse Square's State Theatre for a salute to Les Paul, the original guitar hero. The guest of honor forever changed the sound of popular music when he invented a solid-body electric guitar. It came into vogue in the 1950s, along with a guitar-driven style of music called rock 'n' roll.Slash put on a one-man guitar clinic, coaxing ecstatic squeals and passionate wails during the moody jam "Vocalise". Read the entire report from The Plain Dealer. Fan-filmed video footage of Slash's performance at the event can be viewed below (courtesy of "BigMac2395").
