Les Paul, guitarist and inventor, dies

Guitar legend Les Paul has died aged 94 of 'complications from pneumonia'. The man who gave us the solid electric guitar and paved the way for rock and roll, passed away in hospital with his family by his side.

I am saddened, as the instrument I've used for the last 25 years is a Les Paul Signature Bass. Mine is black though and worn by use, and the best instrument I have ever played.

Go in peace Les, millions of musicians will remember you.
