Slash, Billy Gibbons, Steve Lukather To Pay Tribute To Les Paul

Slash is slated to play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's tribute concert for guitar hero Les Paul.

The former Guns N' Roses/current Velvet Revolver guitarist says he's committed to doing anything he can for the 93-year-old Paul, known as the "Father of the Electric Guitar." Paul's many contributions to music include building the first solid-body electric guitar in 1941. Slash says he has played with Paul - and couldn't keep up with him.

Paul is expected to attend the American Music Masters series event. The lineup of guitar virtuosos for the November 15th concert includes Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, former Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, The Ventures, Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, James Burton and Jennifer Batten
