R. I. P. Les Paul

The legendary Les Paul passed away today at the age of 94. Not only one of the all-time great guitarists, Les literally invented the electric guitar and modern recording techniques like overdubbing. The word "Genius" gets tossed around a lot, but in Les Paul's case it is an understatement.

Here's Les paul performing at the age of 91 and still better than everyone else:

And Here's Les with Mary Ford back in the day:

Rest in Peace, Les Paul. There'll never be another one like you!
