David said Paul would be honored at the organizatio's awards dinner June 9 -- the day Paul turns 90.
Paul is credited with such recording innovations as sound-on-sound, overdubbing, reverb effects and multi-track recording. In 1952, he invented the solid-body electric guitar that bears his name and is still a favorite for rock 'n' roll players.
With the Les Paul Trio --including his late wife Mary Ford on vocals -- Paul recorded such hits as "Tennessee Waltz," "How High The Moon" and "Vaya Con Dios."
