RIP Les Paul
The Grandaddy of the electric guitar and co-developer of the finest musical instrument of all time (The legendary Gibson 'Les Paul' model) has passed away at the age of 94. Imagining a musical world without Les paul is impossible. Not only was he the first person to seriously develop the solidbody electrical guitars that now dominate the industry, he was also the first person to develop multi-track recording. And without him, there'd be less of this :-
And that would have been a tragedy. I'll play a song on mine for you tonight, Les. Good thing this Marshall goes to 11, you may still hear it!
