Rock and Roll Alert-Les Paul Jazz-Guitar Virtuoso and Inventor, Dies at 94

Les Paul, 94, a Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso and inventor who helped bring his instrument, typically assigned to chug along rhythmically and compliantly, to the forefront of jazz performance, died today at a hospital in White Plains, N.Y. He had pneumonia.

Les Paul had a long running Gig in NYC two shows on Monday nights, at the Iridum. He is part of this city's music heritage and his legacy will live on forever in his guitar's. Thank you Les for everything.......
