by Dave Thompson — Mention Les Paul to many, if not most, people and he is synonymous not with his own accomplishments, but with those of a never-ending stream of other people — namely, every single guitar player who has ever strapped on a Gibson Les Paul and played a tune.
Les Paul, the guitar virtuoso and inventor who revolutionized music and created rock ’n’ roll as surely as Elvis Presley and The Beatles by developing the solid-body electric guitar and multitrack recording, died Aug. 13 at age 94.
In honor of the legacy of the late Les Paul, immergent Records will be offering five free downloads from the very last official CD that featured the playing of Les Paul: Les Paul And Friends – A Tribute To A Legend beginning on the same day as his memorial service in Waukesha, Wis.
Capitol/EMI has launched its new "From the Capitol Vaults" vinyl reissue campaign, rock ‘n’ roll collectibles from The Grateful Dead head to the auction block, Brooks & Dunn land on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more.
