    1. He single handedly revolutionized how music was recorded and developed the electric guitar.A true milestone on both counts.Nobody is ever going to be as influential in the music industry as he was again.Goodnight sweet Prince.

      • Don’t go down the lane of cheap flattery. He was an amazing player of the guitar, but what he was mostly was the greatest innovator in the way rock&roll was made. He didn’t invent the electric guitar, but he did make the first really functional version. His multi-track recording innovation, however, was far more important to how music has been recorded over the last fifty years. Without him, there would be no Beatles, no Mommas & the Poppas, no Queen (few classic exploiters of this technique). Frankly popular music would look completely different today if not for him.

    3. Les Paul shattered his right elbow in a car accident; when told that he’d never bend it again, he had it set at a specific angle so he could continue to play the guitar.

      Now that’s love and dedication to an occupation.

    4. He invented the multi-track and the solid-body, the electric guitar has been in use since before that. He didn’t invent it.
