Les Paul, the US musician and electric guitar designer has passed away at the age of 94.
A representative of the musician said Paul, who was still performing regularly in Manhattan not long before his death, said he died of complications linked to pneumonia at White Plains Hospital in New York. His family and friends were by his side.
Paul had spent his life "chasing the perfect sound," as an inventor and musician. He involved himself in the rise of rock 'n' roll and multitrack recording, which enables artists to record different instruments and sing in harmony with themselves, and then arrage all the tracks in the finished recording.
He invented the infamous Gibson Les Paul, one of the first solid-body electric guitars. The first prototypes were made in the 1940's and is still in production today.
As a musician, Paul had a string of hits behind him, many of which were with his wife Mary Ford. His music was influenced by Django Reinhardt, but he himself became an influence on the music of other stars, from Elvis, to Paul McCartney and many rock guitarists.
