Remembering Les - August 12, 2014

Today marks five years since the passing of one  of the world's most unique innovators of all time, Les Paul. It was Les who changed the face of music and has since provided the "shoulders on which every generation of musicians continues to stand." Musicians and others in the music industry cannot get through a day without being reminded of something Les Paul said, did, played or invented. We honor his legacy and continue to celebrate Les Paul, the great man, the amazing inventor, the outstanding humanitarian and the person who left us too soon but will forever remain in our hearts.
