Les Paul 1915 - 2009

Legendary Guitarist And Forefather Of The Electric Guitar Les Paul Dead At 94

I'm musically-challenged myself, but I admire this man's tremendous contribution to music.

RIP Mr. Paul.

I had no idea Les Paul was so old.

RIP, dude.

Me either. He lived a good, long life. We should all be so lucky.

Wow! I had no idea Les Paul was still alive! He sounds like he had a really good life, playing right up to the end!

I also had no idea that the San Francisco Examiner was still around, either!

I don't remember the details but i remember that at one time he almost had his arm amputated. It didn't happen though

An amazing man. That's a nice life span too. He will be missed.

RIP Les. He's probably already playing in Rock and Roll heaven!
