(hennemusic) Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will be honored with the Les Paul Award at the 32nd Annual NAMM TEC Awards on January 21 as part of the 2017 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show in Anaheim, CA.

The annual award is given on behalf of the Les Paul Foundation and honors individuals that have set the highest standards of excellence in the creative application of recording technology in the spirit of the famed audio pioneer, inventor and musician, Les Paul.

"Anytime my name is mentioned in the same sentence as Les Paul, it's a huge honor," says Perry. "Getting an award bearing his name is the icing on the cake."

The Aerosmith rocker will perform live at the NAMM event. "Joe Perry was a friend of Les Paul's and is undoubtedly one of the most innovative and talented musicians of our time," says Michael K. Braunstein, Executive Director of the Les Paul Foundation. "His ability to push boundaries of the electric guitar with his signature sound and deft playing ability embodies the true spirit of what Les Paul and the award given in his name stands for."
