    Farewell Mr. Les Paul

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    Although it's already been posted on the sample page I always pay my respects here.

    Les had a long life. Dead today at the age of 94.
    To say he made a mark on music would be a huge understatement.
    We can thank him for the electric guitar AND his significant contributions to the advent of multi track recording.

    In the world of music he will always be remembered and my condolences go out to his family and friends.

    He was tremendous and many didn't know about his multi tracking work either.

    As for the guitar - all I can say is I would kill for a 1959 Sunburst (if there is such a thing) and just look at it every day, slowly turning into a miser. I can't play the guitar btw.

    So true, many do not know but he was apparantly a very humble man and obviously a "true" musician.

    Funny that you want a beautiful guitar but you don't play, I like that though. You have taste.
    Some of the classic Gibson's are things of sheer beauty.
