Lester William Polsfuss, known as Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009) was a musician and innovator. He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which “made the sound of rock and roll possible.” He is credited with many recording innovations, including overdubbing (also known as sound on sound), delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects, and multitrack recording.
His innovative talents extended into his playing style, including licks, trills, chording sequences, fretting techniques and timing, which set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired many of the guitarists of the present day. He recorded with his wife Mary Ford in the 1950s and they sold millions of hit records.
Les Paul was known for his collaboration with the Gibson Guitar Corporation in the creation of the Gibson Les Paul, one of the most famous solid-body guitars in the world. It has been used by many well-known guitarists including Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page, Randy Rhoads, Slash and Pete Townshend.
Gibson Les Paul adalah antara gitar favorite aku, walaupun gitarnye super berat. Aku last sekali pakai Gibson Les Paul masa live kat Desperado Live & Bar around 2003 kot, memang feel abis la. Perasan rasa macam Slash pulak 😛 <- angau. Tapi mmg best. Gambar masa live tu kat bawah ni (yang sama aku guna kat About page).
Apapun R.I.P Les Paul, and thank you 😐

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always.” -Gandhi (1948-69)

What mine tells me about myself:
You are a long-term planner, diligent worker and avoid risk as much as possible. You are of above average intelligence and have the ability to focus on tasks that seem unimportant at present, but can lead to greater things in the foreseeable future. You are not keen to interact with others or make social connections. You would rather gain material wealth before putting yourself in a position to be judged. You are not confrontational unless someone directly opposes your intellectual beliefs. You are highly concerned with your social status. You are keen to avoid risks that could jeopardize your long-term plans. You take a calculated approach to life, working hard to control all aspects of it in order to not leave anything important to chance.
You tend to be a perfectionist and quite self-conscious. You sometimes wish you were less reserved and more like some others you see who are more bold and outspoken in social situations. But as much as you try to be like them, you cannot, because you care too much about the future to ever be comfortable taking risks in social situations.
