Re: RIP Les Paul

God speed Les, you have changed the face of the guitar world for ever and became a legend in doing it. So many things we take for granted as guitarists are attributed to your gracious and fertile mind. Rest well my friend.

Re: RIP Les Paul

Les Paul was truly a generous human being not to mention a wonderful musician, artist, innovator, and guitar player. He will be missed by his family and many friends, but always cherished for the many great memories and things he gave us all. Condolences to his family and friends.... RIP Lester William Polfuss

Re: RIP Les Paul

Time to celebrate his long life, friends. Whip out the Les Pauls and play him some jazz.

Re: RIP Les Paul

Absolutely the most innovative guitarist ever. From solid body guitars to multi-track recording, he left an indelible impression on the music we will know for a long time yet to come.

RIP, Les

Re: RIP Les Paul

Sad day indeed, but what a life he had - a long life and playing until the end really. You can't ask for much more than that.
