Gibson Black Beauty Les Paul Custom ’68 This was my first “real” guitar. I bought it when I was 14 years old with money that I had made from gigs with my first band (Yesterdays Souls) and loved it. This picture is from Korea with my band, “Rush”. That’s right, it was my band first! Later, I was living in Cambridge, Mass, going to Berklee and had left my apartment for an hour and a half one afternoon. When I got back, the Les Paul, along with my Sony television, stereo system, and a quarter oz. of you know what (it was the ’70s) were gone. Like I said, instruments choose you and sometimes you just have to let them go.more
