Les Paul dies at 94

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 4:10 PM


Music lost a great today. Les Paul, who is credited with "pioneering the solid-body electric guitar," died today at the age of 94.

Many a band hit the big time with a Gibson Les Paul designed axe in hand and so many more still will.

Paul will join the ranks of the guitar gods who've gone before him and will be missed by all of those he left behind. Without him, rock music would not be what it is today.
