Les Paul, 94, Has Died. Yes, He Had a Long Running TV Show in the ’50s, But The Reason You Need To Read About Him is Simply, as The NY Times Says Today, Paul’s ‘Innovations Changed the Course of 20th-Century Popular Music’

Les Paul, a true giant of the music industry, has passed away at age 94. If you have any interest in pop culture today, you need to know about Paul, and a wonderful place to start is this marvelous piece on Paul’s life published today by  New York Times music critic Jon Pareles.

Every rock musician worth his or her salt owes a debt of gratitude to Paul, and almost all say so.
