Les Paul Memorial Dedicated

On September 10, the Les Paul Foundation unveiled and publicly dedicated a 500-square-foot granite monument in honor of guitarist and inventor Les Paul. Family and friends gathered to remember the Wizard of Waukesha at his gravesite in the Prairie Home Cemetery where the new monument stands. It includes a panel with the image of a 1952 Gibson Les Paul guitar surrounded by Paul’s biography, his major awards and inductions, and two quotes attributed to the music pioneer.

Happy Birthday to the late, great Les Paul—inventor, innovator, guitarist extraordinaire, father of multi-track recording, and certified Dirty Old Man. He would have been 96 today. Les, you are greatly missed.
