Les PaulElectric guitar legend, musical innovator Lester William Polsfuss, known as Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009),  a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which “made the sound of rock and roll possible.”, who changed the course of music with the electric guitar and multitrack recording and had a string of hits, many with wife Mary Ford, died Thursday. He was 94.

In my mind I hear “Running Wild” playing over and over.
