That’s what they called Les Paul in Wisconsin, the man who invented the solid body electric guitar and multi-track recording. He died august 13 at 94. The man who made rock ‘n’ roll and much of today’s popular music possible could also play. Here he is. After he shows what he can do with a guitar, there are some photos of his growing up in Waukesha, Wisconsin, just outside of Milwaukee, as well as an interview in which he tells how he got started fiddling with electronics and music.
