    • Yes, thanks, Jilly! They were both around a lot when i was trying to pick a few tunes!

      Les Paul and Mary Ford once upon a time were on TV quite a bunch, live and reruns. ‘How High the Moon?’ indeed!

      Funny how Paul and Atkins were both laid back, if nervous types (lightening, electricity, guitar breakthroughs lead to rock-n-roll which is much more manic than Chester and Lester ever thought of being in the early days of electric guitar!) ;p

This is my journey; these are their stories…
