R.I.P. Les Paul
June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009

I was so sad to hear of Les Paul’s death today…I know he was pretty old but he seemed to be so full of life still! I was really hoping I’d get to see him perform live at some point. Up until his death, he played every Tuesday at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York. Pretty impressive, especially at age 94. In case you missed my earlier entries, Les Paul was an amazing musician and inventor, creator of the famous Les Paul guitar and many modern recording techniques. Honestly, if not for him the music world would be completely different (and definitely not as cool).

Thanks, Les, for being so awesome.
