Ever the showman, Les had a system called the "Les Paulverizer" that 
allowed him to control a tape deck remotely from a button mounted on 
his guitar. He'd demonstrate the system in such a way that he made it 
seem that he was overdubbing on the spot, but the backing tapes were 
actually all prerecorded.
