GUEST,jeff Obit: Les Paul, age 94, passed away 13 Aug 2009 (55* d) RE: Obit: Les Paul, age 94, passed away 13 Aug 09


Other than some mistakes such as "go to guitar for artist's such as Eric Clapton..."(?...he plays a Strat). Most articles are a fitting tribute for THE industry changing inventor. Sargent Pepper, Are You Experienced?, Dookie, etc. all owe a huge debt of thanks to the inventor of modern music. And he GAVE away the technology. Every recording studio in the world should send his estate a royalty. We've lost a true giant.

My favorite Les Paul recording is the one he did with Chet Atkins called 'Chester and Lester'. When asked by Chet Atkins, "What about all those clams(mistakes)? Les replied, "Leave 'em in. Let 'em know we're human." Had a regular gig up to a couple of months ago. What a man. RIP, Mr. Paul.
