Check out some of his stuff - like live at the Mann Hole. Best story is when he met one of his heroes - Chet Atkins. He played one of Chet's pieces for him and asked him if he was playing it right, cuz it was so hard for him to figure out. Chet shook his head and said something to this effect: "Man, I overdubbed those two parts - you're playing them at the same time!!"

I heard a similar story regarding Guy Van Duser meeting Chet... only in this tale Chet says I played it through an echo chamber but you are playing it and the echo!
Lenny's brother Denny is quite a great player too. He live and plays in the Portsmouth Maine area.
