Happy Birthday to the late Les Paul — he would have been 100 today!

I’m very fortunate to have caught one of his performances before his death at the age of 94.

Here he is performing one of my favorite guitar songs, “Sleepwalk” (on his 90th birthday!)

And in his younger years, with wife Mary Ford

And some more amazing-ness!
