On Tuesday, November 11 at 7:00 p.m., original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will appear as a special guest at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio to honor Les Paul. This event, which is part of the Rock Hall's 13th annual American Music Masters series, will be an in-depth look at the history and innovative sound of the distinguished Les Paul-style guitar.
Along with Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar, Ace will speak about his guitar of choice and will demonstrate some of his signature riffs. This "guitar clinic" will prove that in the right hands, a guitar is an uplifting beacon of creativity.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Case Western Reserve University and Gibson Guitar will honor the extraordinary Les Paul with a week-long series of events culminating in a retrospective of Les Paul's life and legacy at Case Western University and an all-star tribute concert at PlayhouseSquare's State Theater.
Artists that have been added to the lineup include Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Duane Eddy as well as Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Eric Carme, Lonnie Mack, and Katy Moffatt.
The concert will also feature Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees James Burton, Billy Gibbons and the VENTURES along with Jennifer Batten, Dennis Coffey, Lenny Kaye, Steve Lukather, Barbara Lynn, Alannah Myles, Richie Sambora and Slash.
