Les Paul, genius. ‘Nuff said? He died yesterday at 94. You can read the NYT obit, if you haven’t already, but even better, watch the video that’s embedded in the obituary webpage. It’s 15 minutes, but worth the time. He was interviewed a year ago, and in the video you can listen as he reviews the highlights of his career as musician, electric guitar inventor, and recording technology innovator. Plus, you get to hear him play — in his 90s. Amazing.
