Les Paul Memories

paulpaul.gifLes Paul died today at 94. I was lucky enough to meet him a few times at Mix TEC Awards after parties and he always attracted a crowd and had great stories. His impact on the audio recoding industry and music in general as a recording artist and inventor of the electric guitar can’t be overstated. Mix’s website is packed with Les Paul press releases and some other gems including a podcast about his involvement with the legendary Fairchild compressor, a great gallery of rare photos, an interview with recording artist Steve Miller who talks about his early and musically formative experiences with Les, and a download of the original patent for the Les Paul guitar. UPDATE: Full story with more links just posted on Mix’s website.
