    OT: So long Les Paul. RIP

    Les Paul died. Complications with pneumonia.

    Wonderful creations he gifted to the music world.

    He broke his right elbow earlier in life and the doctor said they'd have to
    set his arm. He posed his arm as if playing a guitar and said, set it like
    this, so he could continue to play!

    See ya Les!

    Revered guitar player-inventor Les Paul dead at 94

    By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY (AP) – 4 hours ago

    NEW YORK — Musicians worldwide are paying tribute to Les Paul, the
    music icon whose solid-body electric guitar paved the way for rock 'n'
    roll. He died this week at age 94.

    Paul, a guitar virtuoso, performed with some of early pop's biggest
    names and produced a slew of hits, many with wife Mary Ford. But it
    was his inventive streak that made him universally revered by guitar
    gods as their original ancestor and earned his induction into the Rock
    and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the most important forces in popular
    music.

    "He actually taught himself to play guitar in order to demonstrate his
    electronic theories," said Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.
    "All of us owe an unimaginable debt to his work and his talent."

    Paul, who died Thursday in White Plains, N.Y., of complications from
    pneumonia, was a tireless tinkerer, whose quest for a particular sound
    led him to create the first solid-body electric guitar. His invention
    became the standard instrument for legends like Pete Townshend and
    Jimmy Page.

    "The name Les Paul is iconic and is known by aspiring and virtuoso
    guitar players worldwide," said Kiss front man Paul Stanley. "That
    guitar is the cornerstone of a lot of great music that has been made
    in the last 50 years."

    Paul also developed technology that would become hallmarks of rock and
    pop recordings, from multitrack recording that allowed for multiple
    layers of "overdubs" to guitar reverb and other sound effects.

    "He was a futurist, and unlike some futurists who write about it and
    predict things, he was a guy who actually did things," said Henry
    Juskiewicz, chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar, which mass produced
    Paul's original invention.

    Private services are being planned for New York and Waukesha, Wis.,
    Paul's home town, according to an obituary posted by the Iridium Jazz
    Club in New York City, where until recently Paul had played every
    week. Public memorial tributes also are being planned.

    A musician since childhood, Paul experimented with guitar
    amplification for years before coming up in 1941 with what he called
    "The Log," a 4-by-4 piece of wood strung with steel strings. He later
    put the wooden wings onto the body to give it a traditional guitar
    shape.

    The use of electric guitar gained popularity in the mid-to-late 1940s.

    Leo Fender's Broadcaster was the first mass-produced solid body
    electric on the market in the late 1940s.

    Gibson solicited Paul to create a prototype for a guitar and began
    making the Les Paul guitar in 1952. The Who's Townshend, Steve Howe of
    Yes, jazz great Al DiMeola and Led Zeppelin's Page all made the Gibson
    Les Paul their trademark six-string.

    Born Lester William Polfuss on June 9, 1915, he began his career as a
    musician, billing himself as Red Hot Red or Rhubarb Red. He toured
    with the popular Chicago band Rube Tronson and His Texas Cowboys and
    led the house band on WJJD radio in Chicago.

    In the mid-1930s he joined Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians and soon moved
    to New York to form the Les Paul Trio, with Jim Atkins and bassist
    Ernie Newton.

    His first records were released in 1944 on Decca Records. Later, with
    Ford, his wife from 1949 to 1962, he earned 36 gold records for hits
    including "Vaya Con Dios" and "How High the Moon," which both hit No.
    1.

    He had met Ford, then known as Colleen Summers, in the 1940s while
    working as a studio musician in Los Angeles. For seven years in the
    1950s, Paul and Ford broadcast a TV show from their home in Mahwah,
    N.J. (Ford died in 1977, 15 years after they divorced).

    Paul had made his first attempt at audio amplification at age 13.
    Unhappy with the amount of volume produced by his acoustic guitar, he
    tried placing a telephone receiver under the strings. Although this
    worked to some extent, only two strings were amplified and the volume
    level was still too low.

    By placing a phonograph needle in the guitar, all six strings were
    amplified, which proved to be much louder. Paul was playing a working
    prototype of the electric guitar in 1929.

    His work on recording techniques began in the years after World War
    II, when Bing Crosby gave him a tape recorder. Drawing on his earlier
    experimentation with his homemade recording machine, Paul added an
    additional playback head to the recorder. The result was a delayed
    effect that became known as tape echo.

    Tape echo gave the recording a more "live" feel and enabled the user
    to simulate different playing environments.

    Paul's next idea was to stack together eight mono tape machines and
    send their outputs to one piece of tape, stacking the recording heads
    on top of one another. The resulting machine served as the forerunner
    to today's multitrack recorders. Many of his songs with Ford used
    overdubbing techniques that Paul had helped develop.

    Paul's use of multitrack recording was unique. Before he did it, most
    recordings were made on a single tape. By recording each element
    separately, from the vocals to instrumentation on different tracks,
    they could be mixed and layered, adding to the richness in sound.

    In 1954, Paul commissioned the first eight-track tape recorder, later
    known as "Sel-Sync," in which a recording head could simultaneously
    record a new track and play back previous ones.

    In the late 1960s, Paul retired from music to concentrate on his
    inventions. His interest in country music was rekindled in the
    mid-'70s, and he teamed with Chet Atkins for two albums. The duo won a
    Grammy for best country instrumental performance of 1976 for their
    "Chester and Lester" album.

    In 2005, he released the Grammy-winning "Les Paul & Friends: American
    Made, World Played," his first album of new material since those 1970s
    recordings and his first official rock CD. Among those playing with
    him: Peter Frampton, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Richie Sambora.

    "They're not only my friends, but they're great players," Paul told
    The Associated Press. "I never stop being amazed by all the different
    ways of playing the guitar and making it deliver a message."

    Paul was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2005.

    Have you ever been to the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Andy? I bet you'd
    love it. They have good organic food there too.

    My brothers band played there last night and he dedicated a song to Les
    Paul, one of his personal heroes (my dad played Les Paul and Mary Ford
    records when we were little kids) , then played his 1959 Gibson Les Paul
    Standard. Truly a memorable and fitting tribute.

    Not a real 59 LP standard, right? How much are those things worth? Over
    a couple hundred grand? Now that would be special. :-)

    Absolutely it is. Worn ,original finish and patina and everything. I tried
    to take pics but it was dark and my camera sucked!
    My little bro has been a professional musician and guitar/amp repair expert
    for a very long time, and is very good at wheeling, dealing, and "trading
    up".

    That is special. I didn't know that guys would take something like that
    out to actually play. A friend of mine was good at trading up too and
    had several of of those 58-59 LPs. I never got to see them though.
    Congrats to your brother. :-)

    They were made to be played. A museum piece is fine, but who cares how they
    look! It's about how they sound.

    ObFood: above-mentioned brother is also a really good cook and makes his
    own hot sauce from home-grown hot peppers, he saves seeds from previous
    years successful plants We gave him Naga Jolokia and Chile Pequin plants
    earlier in the summer, this has been a cool wet summer here , so they aren't
    doing very well.

    I agree - however, once a guitar price reaches stratospheric levels
    other considerations come into play. That's what I figure anyway. My
    favorite guitar cost 69 bucks. :-)

    I tried to grow Hawaiian chili peppers which are potent and cute little
    things. The plant grew so slowly that I never got anything out of the
    plant and then it got infested with white flies and died. That pretty
    much sums up my skills at growing plants.

    I love those pequins too. I've put whole pequins in my food like one
    would plant mines in a minefield for a blast of intense heat. I love how
    the intensity dies off so quickly. Quite unlike any chilies I've had before.

    dejablues,

    I've heard a lot about it but never attended. It's only about 35 miles away
    but the ex-Sis-IL described it something like once you parked inside the
    fence, you were stuck for the entire 3-day show.

    I'm not fond of that kind of crowded confinement, which is why I've never
    attended.

    Great your brother played and glad his set was well received!

    Best,

    Andy

    There were two brothers in town proper who did nothing but loudly argue
    amongst themselves incessantly in public, wandering about town. War
    veterans. They were a harmless hoot to watch!. Seems they never got along
    verbally but they were side-by-side "joined at the hip" brothers, never
    apart!!!

    Cops fondly referred to them as sonar and radar. I haven't heard them in
    years. [sigh]

    Know it well. No doubt, you and I have probably eaten at some of the same

    George L,

    Probably! Sadly, Media restaurants are failing as much as anywhere else
    these days.

    I've never stopped in Coatesville. I've blown past it on Rte. 30 on the way
    to Lancaster county. Any claim to fame I've missed?

    Not really. You can take the Coatesville Airport exit then turn west on
    Business 30 to Sadsburyville and get some really good hot dogs at the
    Sadsburyville Hotel (Harry's Hot Dogs http://www.harryshotdogs.com/) but
    You really have to be a hot dog freak to make the trip.

    You ever been to Seven Stars up on Rt. 23 near Phoenixville?
    http://www.sevenstarsinn.com/ It has been quite a few years for me but the
    place was great back then. Probably one of the best restaurants in that
    area.

    Shady Maple in Blue Ball? http://www.shady-maple.com/smorgasbord Not fine
    dining, but a huge buffet that is pretty popular with locals and tourists
    alike. "Pennsylvania Dutch" cooking isn't my favorite... usually means
    "cooked to death, cooked some more then served a day later"... but they have
    some pretty good dishes there and the Prime Rib is good on the nights that
    it is available.

    If I ever get back up to PA maybe we can meet for lunch some place.
    Louisiana has some real good food, but the bread and rolls stink and no one
    in the whole damn state knows how to make a cheese-steak or a good Italian
    hoagie.

    Clapton has been astoundingly boring since the early '70s, D&tD.
    A cocaine damaged old man at way too young an age. Perhaps he should

    That said, I adore Cream.

    George L,

    Aside from my 5 (maybe 10) mile radius world I don't get around much,
    except center city Philly by regional rail.

    Sad about no Italian hoagies or cheesesteaks down "Louisiana Way!"

    My ex-Sis-IL stayed with us in L.A. briefly and made us cheesesteaks.
    Taught me well. Her only complaint was the rolls, claiming it was Philly
    water that made all the difference in the rolls. (Amoroso). I made the best
    Philly cheesesteaks in Los Angeles the "town" has ever seen.

    Sure, if you're up to Philly, email me. If I'm around, by all means we'll
    join up. Re-unite you with some of Philly's "third world" cuisine.

    Best,

    Andy

    I sat in with Cream on Tuesday, October 25, 2005 at MSG (NYC), at the
    opposite end of the stage. <G>

    What a treat.

    Agreed. Clapton WAS God on junk.
