Million Dollar Les Paul from the Author: Tony Bacon. The original sunburst Gibson Les Paul - known as the 'Burst' - is the most celebrated electric guitar of all time. Manufactured at the end of the 50s, it was the instrument of choice for players such as Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck (left). Now, examples of the guitar are changing hands for high six-figure sums. Million Dollar Les Paul tells the story of these legendary instruments and explores why they have become so desirable. It seems only a matter of time before a Burst sells for a million dollars. By the time you read this book, in fact, it may already have happened. This book, by renowned guitar historian Tony Bacon, combines meticulous research with a series of new interviews with players, technicians, and collectors, including Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Mr. Les Paul himself. It takes readers on a fascinating journey from a factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, through the British blues scene of the 60s, to the salerooms and concert stages of the present day.

The Virgin Encyclopedia Of Fifties Music from the Author: Colin Larkin. It was the decade that gave birth to rock'n'roll and spawned the rise and rise of popular music as we know and love it. It didn't all begin in the 1950s, but without the musicians, songwriters, and producers who started breaking down barriers and appealing to those new-fangled teenagers, who knows what we'd be listening to today? The Virgin Encyclopedia of Fifties Music includes information on all the new directions that were signposted by doo-wop groups like The Platters and The Four Freshmen, by the raw rockabilly of Carl Perkins and Gene Vincent, and by the teen idols led by the Everly Brothers and the King himself, Mr. Elvis Presley. The names of the entries alone remind you what an important decade of music this was: Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis (what a band that would have been...). But with nearly 1000 entries, the encyclopedia can delve behind the headline acts and look at artists who flourished relatively briefly -- Frankie Lymon, Frankie Ford or the Chordettes for example -- as well as covering the great string of easy-listening artists from Peggy Lee to Frank Sinatra.
