RIP Les Paul

  1. More here

    Interesting article if you don't know much about him. Amazing guy, RIP.

  2. Just read this on news.com.au too; another link with music's innovative past is broken :(.
  3. Very sad, still, at 94, he'd had plenty of time to make his mark. Another great of the music industry leaves us.
  4. I just heard, bit sad. Oh well, 94, he had a good innings!

    A smell a special edition guitar on the way. :grin:
  5. And everyone who owns a GENUINE Les Paul (as distinct from the 1000's of replicas out there) can rest assured that their instrument just went UP in value! :wink:
  6. RIP a legend
    EpiPhone is Gibson too and in the 70s Ibanez made better les pauls than Gibson :p
    Pricing on a LTD les paul? 6000 plus start the bidding
  7. Ahh, a sad day indeed.

    Rest assured, all those who play his instruments will sustain his image.

  8. I wonder if all the guiters are gently weeping!
  9. Will need to play some tunes tonight in respect.
  10. My EpiPhone shed some tears. LP had a full life, made his mark and I'll gladly strum some chords for him tonight. :)

  13. The missus says that while he made some nifty guitars it was his multi-track recording method that was the major invention.
  14. id be happy with 94, not a bad innings
  15. Farewell Les. You will never be forgotten.
  16. i am not skilled enough, and too poor to afford one of his instruments.

    innovative man.
