Guitar Players Everywhere...." Guitar legend Les Paul dies at age 94"

That's me with one of my guitars, this one, my Alpine White Gibson Les Paul, which happens to be one of my favorite things, along with most valuable and cherished possessions. The reason I show this about 8 month old pic before losing 30 lbs is to pay homage to the only reason I and millions of other guitar players have these wonderful guitars to play and cherish as I do.

That of course would be because of one man, really one man only, and that man happens to be this guy here for those not in tune with the music culture and wayback history, which is ok.......

The One and Only Les Paul, who just died minutes ago at 94 years old, and this happens to be the first story over the wire about this legendary man and his passing this morning...and being in somewhat of a hurry right now, I'll add more about this man as the day goes on.

And btw...he died in White Plains New York where my father was born and I myself lived as a kid for a couple years..
Guitar legend Les Paul dies at age 94: "7 minutes ago

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Les Paul, the guitarist and inventor who changed the course of music with the electric guitar and multitrack recording and had a string of hits, many with wife Mary Ford, died on Thursday. He was 94.

According to Gibson Guitar, Paul died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains Hospital. His family and friends were by his side.

As an inventor, Paul helped bring about the rise of rock 'n' roll and 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."

Here's Chet Atkins and Les Paul as Les (sitting) starts with "Birth of the Blues" and Chet joins in.

Good stuff.

Then this is Jimmy Page demonstrating in a jam with the Black Crowes what the best can do when a Gibson Les Paul is strapped around their necks.....


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
