My favorite guitarist/inventor past away today, he was a role model to me and I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing.
Les Paul (1915-2009) : Rolling Stone
I am just glad I got to see him literally a month before he contracted Pnuemonia, he was still rockin at 94 and with only two fingers due to arthritis.
This is the kind of stuff he did, YouTube - Les Paul - Chasing Sound!
He invented the "Solid body electric guitar"
He invented ""Multi Track Recording"
He revolutionized music pretty much making "pop" music itself
and a bunch of other stuff that would take to long to list.
