Vaya Con Dios Les Paul
Music legend Les Paul died last week (August 13) at the age of 94. The innovations Paul brought to the world of music as a guitarist, a guitar builder and recording engineer may have no equal. In the last week, much has been written about Paul by writers who are far more informed about his career than me and I encourage you to seek out some of those peices out and read them. In the meantime, please read this article about Paul posted on PBS' website in 2006 to coincide with the debut of the American Masters program, "Les Paul: Chasing Sound". And, if at all possible, rent or buy the DVD of the program. You'll be astonished by the man's many accomplishments.
