Les Paul - We Will Miss You

Lester William Polsfuss

Lester William Polsfuss was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin on June 9, 1915. Today, the blues world lost another great.

The guitar legend, Les Paul, died today at the age of 94, suffering from medical complications at White Plains Hospital.

"The world has lost a truly innovative and exceptional human being today. I cannot imagine life without Les Paul," said Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and chief executive officer of Gibson Guitar.

Paul is the only individual who has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the National Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Like so many of the genre, he will be missed.
