Rest in peace and thanks for doing so much for the electric guitar and music and building without a shadow of a doubt one of the best guitars in history.


Wouldn't it be fitting to see all the great bands and artists who used the Les Paul play a tribute gig.  yes

RIP Les Paul…

What a true legend in music and a man who left a MASSIVE footprint on music and America. Inventing the electric guitar, the multitrack recorder, and being an incredible guitarist in his own right, this is a guy who changed our very culture.

Les,

Congratulations on your graduation to heaven. You had a very meaningful life and served your purpose on Earth by placing so much happiness and inspiration within to your listeners/fans. Your contributions into the music industry will not be forgotten.

That great "band in the sky" just got better. Besides being an inventor and innovator, he was a truly great guitarist. That often gets overlooked, but he could play with anyone. If you were ever fortunate enough to see him perform, then I am sure you'll agree. R.I.P. Mr. Paul, I am going to go pick up your namesake instrument right now and play for a while in tribute.  tombstone

Very sad news  Sad . May he rest in peace.

His contribution to music will be remembered forever. I guess that musicians like B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page and all who played or are playing with a Les Paul must be sadder than we are...

That would actually be a good idea.

And he was still playing with his trio in New York past 90 years of age. Sad I never got to see them.

Although I don't own a Les Paul, much of my favorite music was recorded and performed with them.

He was certainly a game changer.
I love his guitars. I was also impressed that he started multi-tracking recordings as well.
