Les Paul

An innovator in the music and recording world died today at 94. Les Paul was an incredible guitar player and inventor. He developed and introduced multi track recording, delay effects, and overdubbing to the recording world in the 1940's and 50's and changed how we record and listen to music forever. He was also a pioneer in the development of the solid body electric guitar, changing rock music forever. Even at 94 years of age he played guitar with his jazz trio every monday night in New York city at the famed Iridium Jazz club on broadway. He was an incredible example of a man who worked hard his entire life. He will be missed.

Jesus, may I pursue you and my life with that much passion and intensity. 

grace and peace,
