Godfather of Electric Guitar Les Paul Dies

The guitar Les Paul put his name to made rock'n'roll possible. Ironic, as he intended it to be a jazz instrument. There are so many ways Les Paul's epitaph could be written – he could be remembered as the pioneer of multitrack recording, the godfather of the electric guitar, and the figurehead behind rock'n'roll's development, from John Lee Hooker to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones to the Sex Pistols and Guns N' Roses , guardian.co.uk reports.

Paul will be remembered for many things: as a hit-maker with his late wife, Mary Ford ; as a key figure in the development of the electric guitar; as a wily experimenter in electronic effects and guitar design, and as a pioneer of multitrack recording , New York Daily News reports.

Former Guns N Roses man Slash said: “He was an exceptionally brilliant man, musician, inventor, mentor & friend.” , MTV UK reports.
