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.

Its very sad to see him go but he is gone now, but he lead an amazing and fuffiling life and changed the world of music forever.

I didn't know him before I read this post. I must say I enjoy his work and it's a shame he's no longer with us.

What a sad weekend it is for guitarists and guitar enthusiasts everywhere. I've been so wrapped up in some projects I have going on, that I just found out he passed away a couple minutes ago from this post. Thanks, Secret ..

I played my Les Paul at my band's show yesterday more than I normally do as a tribute to Les. He was such an important man.
