R.I.P. Les Paul
Les_PaulI was saddened to learn of the death of the great Les Paul today. If you do not know who Les Paul is, I feel sorry for you. If you play guitar or even listen to pre-recorded music, you owe a debt to Mr. Paul.

I cannot think of anyone more important or influential to the world of modern music then Les Paul. Practically the entire business of music recording, not to mention guitar building and performance, stands on the foundation built by Les Paul.


One of the best concert videos I've ever seen was a tribute to Les Paul rented from the video store years ago. I cannot remember the title, but it featured a bevy of amazing musicians including David Gilmore, Eddie Van Halen, Jan Hammer, and more than I can remember right now. I've looked high and low in vain for a copy of the video. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, and especially if you know where I can find a copy, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Thank you, Mr. Paul. You made the world a better place for millions of musicians and billions of people all over the world. Peace be with you.
