Excuse us for that last Les Paul headline
Back in January, Denver Post columnist Woody Paige wrote that New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul "plays basketball like Les Paul played guitar" -- a sentence that implied the elder Paul, an ax pioneer, inventor and namesake of a Gibson electric guitar beloved by a legion of famous rockers, was no longer with us. The sentence prompted us to publish a snarky blog entitled "Good News, Woody Paige: Les Paul Isn't Dead Yet" -- a banner I'm regretting right now given that Paul died today at age 94. Betcha Paige is just as bummed about that as the rest of us music fans are. Vaya con Dios, Les.
