quote of the day

"When I was a kid there was only one person in my hometown that played the guitar, and that was me. It was all piano in the old days. The guitar was rare.

What we did was take an acoustical instrument – which was a very apologetic, wonderful, meek instrument – and turned it into a pit bull."
– les paul
les paul, inventor of the electric guitar and multitrack recording, grew up in waukesha, wisconsin. he died last week thursday due to complications from pneumonia.
