Les Paul

As most of you know, music legend and creator of the standard in electric guitars, Les Paul died today in New York at the age of 94. Les died of complications from pneumonia. There's been so much said about him that I don't have much to add, except that without him rock & roll wouldn't be what it is today. Aside from the electric guitar, Les also came up with multitrack recording, which allowed artists to record different instruments at different times. This website gives a list of all the famous artist who've played Les Paul Guitars through thr years and its pretty amazing. Here's a cool video where Les Paul introduces an estatic crowd to his invention the Les Pulverizer. Enjoy
