The inventor and so much more would have been 100 years old today. Les Paul. Huh, what is it about these Pauls? He pioneered so many music innovations including the electric guitar and over-dubbing.

He said he could make $1000 a day playing country or $1 playing jazz. He ate and prospered nonetheless.
