Les Paul died today. I don't have a whole lot to say about it above what others have said already.
My first, good guitar was a Les Paul Custom that was heavy as hell and sounded amazing. I saw the man himself play last year and he was a fantastic performer. He was a little rough around the edges, guitar-wise, but the guy was 94. If we could all be that fortunate. Rest in peace Les and thanks for changing everything for the better.
