For the repose of the soul of Les Paul
« on: August 13, 2009, 01:03:38 PM »
I know there are more than a few guitarists and music nerds on here, so if you haven't heard, yet:

Les Paul, whose innovations with the electric guitar and studio technology made him one of the most important figures in recorded music, has died, according to a statement from his publicists. Paul was 94.

I had not appreciated Mr. Paul's musical genius until I say a bio of him on PBS. An amazing musician, inventor and guitarist. I must say that his wife Mary Ford also was very talented and sang like an angel.

Les, thanks for what you did to the electric guitar!

O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!
