I had the great honor a couple of years ago to do an album with Levon Helm, the late, great drummer for The Band, and also one of the most important singers in the history of rock music. We lost Levon Helm, just a few short months ago to cancer, and this was devastating to all who knew him, and to all in the world of music.

Arlen Roth Recalls Working on the “Thank You Les” project!

This is truly an insider’s look into what it was like to work on such an amazing and lasting project. I mean, what could be more satisfying than actually playing on a tribute to Les Paul!? Is there a man who has contributed more to the world of guitar and to music in general? Could there have been a charming, charismatic and supportive person, ever? Well, with the exception of my father, the late great Al Ross, who passed this year at 100 years young, I can’t imagine a better “father figure” than Les Paul himself.

Delighted to continue to report on the development of this wonderful project, and also so proud to be a part of it, along with my daughter, Lexie Roth, who sang on this wonderful new album. The other night, in NYC at the Iridium Club, where Les Paul had “held court” for so many years, we all got to celebrate the release of Lou Pallo’s wonderful project with the Les Paul Trio called “Thank you Les��, a true tribute to the man himself, said as only so many great artists can say it; with their music!

This week my daughter Lexie and I performed at the Americana Music Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. It was a very impromptu gig that we kinda did at the last minute since we were playing in New York City two nights before for the Les Paul Tribute album release on which we had recorded. We decided to perform just the two of us and make it into a great father-daughter trip and we drove the whole way from New York. We tried to get in touch with many friends who we wanted to come to the show and some did but it was very hard because it was such a last minute gig. One thing that I can say is that even though the crowd was relatively small it was a lovely club to play (Douglas Corner Cafe), the audience was extremely enthusiastic.

Arlen Roth’s Studio Tips

A lot of the things I found out about studio work I sure found out the “hard way.” I had started very young doing sessions in New York, and even though folks would see me play live and then love it and call me in for sessions, it often would become quite apparent that what I did live with such freedom had absolutely nothing to do with what they really wanted from me in the recording! It’s not say they didn’t want the “talent” that they saw, but I think that they were so used to “studio guys” who would just crank out the tracks, regardless of style, that they somehow figured I’d be like that too.

I often like to say that many times, I can even have the album cover and concept of choice decided on even before I record any music! This is certainly not the usual way it happens, but me being a very visually oriented person, it only makes sense for me to have these concepts ahead of time.

Arlen Roth on Being Dedicated to Guitar

The kind of dedication to the guitar that we really need to be at the top of our game is really something that few are willing to venture. I was fortunate in the sense that in my developing and ensuing years I had such a “natural” drive on the instrument and desire to get better, that it was something I barely noticed; it was more like it was just “breathing” for me, and seemed to simply be the natural course to take. I’m sure it had to do with being so young, and that other “responsibilities” had not yet taken over my life!

Well over a year ago my daughter Lexie and I got to be on what I would call a true “album for the ages.” It’s a tribute to Les Paul from his friends and musical admirers, and we all do duets with the wonderful Lou Pallo, (who has his own signature Les Paul model now) and The Les Paul Trio. Other luminaries such as Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Steve Miller, Johnny A. and Slash appeared on this album too, and it’s really quite an amazing project to be a part of.

I know I often write about the “positive” gigs, and the wonderful experiences I love to share with you about them, but there sure can be a lot of negative aspects to gigs that many of you should always be on the lookout for.
