Sad, sad news - the passing of a man who was already a legend in his own lifetime. Les Paul dies in White Plains, NY at the age of 94. Not only did this musical genius develop one of the first solid body guitars "the log" in 1941, his designs later marketed by Gibson, he was also a pioneer of what we now call music technology. This is the man invented multitrack recording and ushered in an entirely new way of capturing bands' performances that would revolutionise the rock'n'roll era and influence all future recording.

We mourn a great guitarist and phenomenal musical inventor.
