Les Paul, the guitar virtuoso and inventor who revolutionized music and who helped create rock 'n' roll by developing the solid-body electric guitar and multitrack recording, died this past Thursday August 13th at the age of 94.Known for his lightning-fast riffs, Paul performed with some of early pop's biggest names and produced a slew of hits, many with wife Mary Ford. But it was his inventive streak that made him universally revered by guitar gods as their original ancestor and earned his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the most important forces in popular music.
Les Paul, died in White Plains, N.Y., of complications from pneumonia, he will forever be missed..
