Dintrox12 Posted August 14, 2009 Report Share Posted August 14, 2009 Les Paul passed away today at the age of 94. He is probably best known for the development of the solid body guitar. Les Paul was also a great jazz guitarist in his own right, he released a slough of hits with his wife Mary Ford, and was an innovative recording engineer. The Gibson Les Paul guitar is perhaps the best known electric guitar in Rock. If you've ever listened to Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Guns 'N Roses, Bob Marley, Rush, Kiss, or the Who you have heard its sweet sound. Les performed regularly into his 90s and was a class act. RIP Les Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
