Just red the news; very sad indeed. What can one say?

He really changed my world. May he rest in peace.

A little tribute to LP.

Images can be more effective than words.

Les Paul tells the story, that he invented the electric guitar in 1941!!!!!! It took him 10 years to convince a company to build it! Unbelievable...

Here's the interview:

 

RIP Les

The only reason Gibson finally listened to him and released the Les Paul in 1952 was that Fender was selling tons of Broadcasters/Telecasters by then. Gibson totally missed the boat.

 

Again, Les Paul was ahead of his time.

One thing that I find truly inspiring about Les Paul is the fact that he played till almost his last days. I remember the interview he did in Guitar Player where he said that a Nurse who wasn't familiar at all with his playing told him to stop trying to play like he used to and start playing like he does now. I thought that was great advice.

 

With so many musicians that check out of this life so young, it's great to have one that has lasted for so many years. One of my greatest wishes is to be able to play until the day I die. I want to die in the saddle just like Les.

 

Les will be remembered and his music will live on. Thank you Les!!
