Les Paul

Les Paul, the creator of the iconic guitar that bears his name, died this week at the age of 94. In addition to his world-famous guitar designs, he also pioneered multi-track recording, a standard recording tool for today's music. This was a man passionate about music, who continued to play guitar into his 90's, and even had his arm set in a guitar-playing position after breaking it severely in 1948. He contributed more to music than I can fully grasp. Everyone making their living in the music business owes Les Paul a massive debt, and he will be dearly missed.
