An Associated Press breaking news report just posted,tells of a great loss for the music and entertainment industry.
Today is a sad day for the music world. Guitar inventor,and guitarist Les Paul passed away quietly in his White Plains,NY,hospital bed,at age 94,surrounded by surviving family,and friends.
One of the most famous guitar designs: Gibson,was inspired by his extra- ordinary vision and design skills.
I myself never thought of playing the guitar at all. In my Youth,I did a few stints at playing in a high school band,but never thought I had the natural talent,and gave it up. Just to pick the guitar again after watching Les Paul’s Trio videos on YouTube.
Thank You Les Paul for your historical instrumental contribution to rock ‘n ‘roll,which music would not be as rich and contagious if it wasn’t for your inventions of the solid-body electric guitar and multitrack recording. Now you can perform your beloved music to the angels above. Rest in Peace.
