Having, over the years, played with King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Talking Heads, and David Bowie to name just four, Adrain Belew’s guitar bona fides are airtight. He recently wrapped up a four-night run at NYC's Iridium where her performed with his Adrian Belew Power Trio which also features bassist Julie Slick and drummer Tobias Ralph. The shows were tributes to Les Paul, and we caught their June 9 show which was Les' actual birthday (he would've been 103) where they played a mix of solo and King Crimson tunes. Pics from the show (including opener Saul Zonana), are in the gallery above and you can check out the 6/6 Iridium setlist below.
