R.I.P. Les Paul

I don't have a lot to say on this. The guy was 94 and some of my fellow bloggers thought he was already dead (Chris! Ha ha). But it doesn't matter. He invented multitrack recording and of course designed one of the first and most iconic electric guitars. AND he was a killer player to boot, kept his shit together and still gigged in his 90s. For any one of those reasons, he's in the history books and will live on forever.

CNN ran a nice obit here.

And here is a cool old video showing why this man KICKED SO MUCH ASS:
