Les Paul died at the age of 94 today from complications due to pneumonia. Les was simply a legend. He was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar. Most everyone knows his signature Les Paul guitar. Not to mention he was an incredible musician with countless albums. He had invented countless guitar effects and many techniques that are used all the time to this day. I would be here for hours if I were to list all of his accomplishments and what he's done for rock and roll music. Rest in peace, Les Paul. You're a hero.

Man, when I heard this last week it was a shock. Les was truly a pioneer to rock and roll and music all together. One of the best musicians to ever live in my book. Rest in peace, Les.

It's kind of sad there are so many metalheads on the site, but this topic only got two replies...

Massacre, you make me look like a rational, moral, kind person.

Massacre - What you've just posted is sick and disturbing...

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.

Finally some appreciation for a true guitar hero.

I'm not surprised. Didn't expect many on this site to have as much appreciation for the man as I do. Most people only know the name Les Paul as a guitar, not a brilliant musician.

R.I.P. A true legend.

Theres a good documentary on YouTube featuring him (and other legends like B.B King), it's called "The Story of the Guitar: Out of the Frying Pan" and is part of a series made a while back for the BBC. You negroids should check it out.
