RIP: Les Paul

The great Les Paul died today. Without him the entire history of American music (and most of the world too) would be drastically different. No Rock N' Roll, no Dylan goes electric, and no wall of sound. The impact this dude had on music cannot be understated. That said, it's not a sad day. The man lived to be 94 years old and was still performing until very recently. I'm bummed I never saw him. I planned on it a few times but always said, "eh, he'll play again next week." Looks like I waited too long.
