RIP Les Paul

A father of electric guitar and overdubbing.
I looked on line for one of the old pictures of Chuck with Les Paul's namesake. The best I could do in a pinch was the cover of After School Sessions.
Les Paul kept performing till the end. It's the way we all would like to go. (He kept showing up for a regular gig at a small club. Sounds like someone else.) Here's a random article.

And here's Chuck Berry with a Les Paul model Gibson, before he settled into the semi-hollow bodies.
