Les Paul dead at 94

Post by Rurudyne » Thu Aug 13, 2009 10:32 pm

... from complications associated with pneumonia.

Credited by some as the "Father of the Electric Guitar", Paul was someone who has literally touched all our lives. Certainly his achievements in the field of electric amplification are well worth noting.

He also made a darned good guitar too.

And his technical contributions overshadow his own musicianship, which is notable in its own right.

I'm a guitar player. I certainly salute him tonight.

He will be missed. Rock music wouldn't be what it is today without him.
