R.I.P. Les Paul (1915-2009)

les paul
here we go again with another person passing away during this summer of sadness. les paul died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains Hospital in White Plains, NY this morning.

when looking to buy my first guitar, i didn’t know much, but knew that les paul was the way to go. even if it was more pricey that your average, it made me feel invincible (despite me being terrible on the damn thing). he will be missed and his contributions to modern music will never be forgotten.
