    Les Pauls are associated with all kinds of generes but i really feel of them all, punk rock may be the most defined or heavily influenced by the LP sound. Theyre everywhere! So for you punk rockers out there lets list some of your gibson toting heroes, pics with pauls or other fun associated memories.

    Here's a band called the welch boys. With a completely relevant song called Les Paul.

    I love Steve Jones.

    Wow is that him now. I last saw a picture of him 4 or 5 years ago. He's really let himself go. Oh well, still bad ass!

    Kerry Martinez of the U.S Bombs

    Kerry Martinez on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    played an 80s studio for years, moved over to Sparrow Guitars now.

    Can't forget Lars Frederiksen- still rockin the Epiphones!

    but my favourite guitarist of all time would be Chuck Briggs of the Dischords/ U.S. Bombs

    The Les Paul custom he played belonged to his girlfriend, who still has it. I'd give my left nut for that guitar!
