Les Paul, father of the electric guitar and multi-track recording, died today.
Rolling Stone has a good bio and pictures.
I saw a TV show last year when he was 92 or 93 and he could still shred nicely. My version of Les Paulâ€™s guitar is one of my favorites to play with.
The best tribute, though, isnâ€™t how well he played or what he invented but that virtually everybody in the guitar world really really liked him.
