R.I.P. Les Paul

The guitar legend, who literally carved an indelible mark on the history of the electric guitar and multi-track recording, has died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains hospital in New York (via AP). He had a storied career as an artist and innovator, and continued performing in more recent years every Monday night at NYC’s Iridium jazz club, a residency which a good many of us are kicking ourselves for never having attended. He was 94.
