A Little More About “A Little More Les”

Back in May we teased you and told you we couldn’t say a whole lot more about it.

Well, now we can.

Our book about Les Paul, “A Little More Les,” is now in the hands of our publisher.  We had no idea of the amount of real work that goes into writing a book, particularly when it’s a book about something/someone you really care about and want to get right.

Hopefully, we did.

We wanted to do this book “old school,” so it will be published as a hard cover, four color edition.  Here is a look at the cover.

As you can see, Duane Eddy was nice enough to do the forward.  Charlie Daniels, Tommy Emmanuel, Doyle Dykes, Muriel Anderson and Frank Vignola added some of their memories of Les, too.

As it says on the cover, this book is a collection of conversations, photos and memories from our treasured friendship with Les.  We went through years and years of material from our archives and selected what we think is some pretty cool stuff to share with you.  Then, we stirred in a lot of previously never told stories and rare photos.  Hopefully, Les would have liked it.  Hopefully, you will too.

While the book won’t be out for a few weeks, for Les’s 100th birthday (June 9th) we announced a special pre-order offer.  You can pre-order an autographed copy, just by clicking on the link from the website alittlemoreles.com.

For those of you who are a little shy or distrustful of buying something on the web, our publisher, Bantry Bay Books, has set up a pre-order phone number, too.  Again, just click on the website link above and everything shall be revealed.

“A Little More Les” has been in the works for quite some time.  We’re very proud of it and can’t wait till copies are in our/your hands.
