I think this quote from Keith Richards pretty much sums up the importance of the late Les Paul:
"It has to be said, we must all own up that without Les Paul, generations of flash little punks like us would be in jail or cleaning toilets. This man, by his genius, made the road that we still travel today. I don't know how he did it, but I'm so grateful he did."
Famous Les Paul Players:
Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Pete Townshend, Slash, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Paul McCartney, Frank Zappa, Don Felder, Lindsey Buckingham, Peter Green, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Neal Schon of Journey, Nancy Wilson of Heart, and the list goes on and on.
There would not have been rock and roll if it weren't for him.
About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
