Quote:
Les Paul, who invented the solid-body electric guitar later wielded by a legion of rock 'n' roll greats, died Thursday of complications from pneumonia. He was 94.

As an inventor, Paul also helped bring about the rise of rock 'n' roll with multitrack recording, which enables artists to record different instruments at different times, sing harmony with themselves, and then carefully balance the tracks in the finished recording.

The Story...

Sad news.

RIP Les Paul.

RIP Les Paul

Sad that I am only now hearing of him... yes, that's right... now. Funny how I hear of some people when they die, but I don't really hear about them when they are alive...
