    Les Paul, jazz icon, industry innovator and legend, entertainer extrordinair passes through

    what a musician, what an innovator, what an entertainer...I fell in love with this man and his legacy so I went to see his show and wrote about it, they were the most intimate and personally memorable concerts I've been and man did I have a ball

    rest easy, rest well Les, you are loved by people you do not even know and we will miss you

    not friends unless you include the fact that everyone at his show became a friend of his

    he knew me enough to say hi and wave when I went to see his show but wouldn't remember my name until I reminded him.

    sweetheart this man and did nothing but give his entire life.

    94 years of service ep, a good life to be sure
