Les Paul, the father of the electric guitar has died of pneumonia at age 94. If you've ever seen him interviewed, his enthusiasm for music is impossible to miss. He played live shows right up until the end and never looked happier than when he was playing. "That's all well and good, but what does this have to do with electronic music?" I can hear you ask. Les Paul also happened to be the inventor of multi-track recording, an invention that completely changed the face of all music as we know it.
