Jon Hammond with PICO and Star-Club survivors St. Pauli Hamburg

There I am with Pico, when I played on his show about his life working at the legendary Star-Club with the Beatles, Rattles, Chuck Berry and others on the Reeperbahn. This guy was the original deal. He is still there working on the Deutsche Bundesbahn and living on the Hein Hoyer Str. in St. Pauli. Amazing guy and life story. I met some of the originals playing there at the Delphi Music Theatre.

The Lost Les Paul Tapes 1988 from Jon Hammond Show

May 31, 2010


The Lost Les Paul Tapes 1988 from Jon Hammond Show – Recorded April 4, 1988 NYC

As seen on The Jon Hammond Show MCTV a 1988 performance of Les Paul Trio at Fat Tuesday’s NYC “There’s No Place Like Home” dedicated to Les’ Mom aka “Sniff Along With Les” hilarious commentary from Les.
*note from Jon Hammond: apology for some slight tracking variance, the historic nature of these previously lost tapes determine I broadcast this again in Les’ memory.

Gary Mazzaroppi is the bass player and Lou Pallo second guitar (also a Gibson according to Les!)

Special thanks Roger Bell, Joe Berger, Rusty Paul.

Sincerely, Jon Hammond NYC NY

The Jon Hammond Show is on MNNTV New York City

RIP Les – Lester William Polsfuss (June 9, 1915 – August 12, 2009)
