Guitarist and inventor Les Paul died today at the age of 94 in New York. He brought us multi-track recording and the electric guitar, which originally was called "The Log." Before looking like a guitar, it was "a four-by-four piece of wood with steel strings," the Associated Press describes. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will place flowers at his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You can pay your respects at 1541 N. Vine Street, south of Selma Avenue.
