Slash down for Rock Hall Les Paul tribute

Legend expected to attend American Music Masters event

CLEVELAND -- Slash will play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's tribute concert for his guitar hero Les Paul.

The former Guns N' Roses 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 Nov. 15 concert includes Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, the Ventures and Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi.
