Remembering Guitar Legend Les Paul

Les Paul RIP

Les Paul, inventor of the solid-body electric guitar, passed away on August 13th, 2009 at the age of 94, due to complications from pneumonia. This news makes me so sad, I can’t even think of anything to say about it right now, but you can read an obit from the New York Times at This Link.

Happy Birthday, Les Paul!
