Deemed "hallowed ground" by legendary guitarist Steve Miller, The Iridium stage has played a part in launching the careers of countless artists, though it may be known best as The Home of Les Paul. Called "The Father of the Electric Guitar, " Paul performed at The Iridium weekly for more than 12 years until his passing in 2009. Today, the Les Paul trio continues on in his honor, showcasing the diversity of the electric guitar every Monday night with world-class special guests that have included Jeff Beck, the Rolling Stones' Mick Taylor, Steve Miller, and Robert Randolph among others. Guitar World called it "the city's-if not the country's-new home of the guitar, " the New York Times dubbed it a "guitar shrine, " and the Wall Street Journal described it as "the small club that welcomes millions" for its regular HD webcasts and recordings for its IridiumLive label.
