    Very sad news. He was very intelligent, honest and friendly man. We can at least give up him honour with playing our Les Pauls.

    RIP Les. :-(

    Re: Les Paul Has Died at 94

    I am truely speachless. This just made my heart sink.
    He was an inventor, an originator and I have been yearning to go see him in New York for along time.

    In college I did a history paper on his contributions to the recording industry and multi-track recording (Sound on Sound).

    Without Lester William Polfuss, a.k.a Rhubarb Red, a.k.a. Les Paul, this music world would not be what it is today.

    I am stunned, saddened, and ... speechless.

    Now here is a man, entertainer, etc., that SHOULD be celebrated.

    My partner in crime at work and I have been talking about going into Manhattan (we both live on Long Island) to see him one Monday night for oh about the last 4 years. I guess we just took it for granted that Les would always be there. Truly a sad day. :(

    RIP Les. Our prayers are with your family and friends.

    Wow, an icon and innovator. Les, you will be greatly missed.
    Music is so intimate when it's true. Meaning that every time you create it's as if you are putting everything you believe in on the line while simultaneously exposing everything that you are about.I'd like to believe that kind of bravery is beyond reproach.-Gainiac

    I'd always hoped to make it to NYC to see him play. I'll be wearing black for a while. What an inspiration in creativity both as a player and inventor.

    The band in heaven just got a lot better!

    I'll be kicking myself for years for not checking him out at the Iridium in NYC, which I had planned to do so many times, but just never followed through.

    Les, the vast impact that you made on modern music is beyond description. You will be missed... but definitely not forgotten.

    This is truly a sad day for the music world and world as a whole. I was fortunate to have seen him play and meet him twice briefly . He was just as genuine and nice as anyone could be. His name and legacy lives on in all our hearts and minds.

    RIP Les

    Sad day for us...the music industry is indebted to him.

    He had a great run.
