RIP, Les Paul

An amazingly talented man has left us.

Billboard: Les Paul: Original Guitar Hero

Legendary guitar and recording innovator Les Paul, 94, died Aug. 13 from complications of severe pneumonia at White Plains (N.Y.) Hospital.

A key pioneer in electric guitar sounds, responsible for developing and lending his name to what many consider rock'n'roll's definitive guitar, Paul's career spanned from the jazz age through the new millennium.
