Les Paul RIP

Sad news from the entertainment industry. Les Paul, musician and inventor passed away at 94. He invented the Gibson solid body guitar and multi-track recording. Without him, there would be no rock-n-roll.

His latest recording was "Les Paul and friends: American Made, World Played" in which he traded hot licks with some of the greatest guitar heroes.

Rock on, Les.

    I didn't know much about Les Paul until newscasters started talking about him. He apparently was an amazing artist and contributed so much to the industry.

    Straight From Hel

    When I was young, I used to watch the Les Paul and Mary Ford show. His show was one of the reasons I took up guitar in high school. Maybe I'll take it up again.
