Oh, damn!

I went to college in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which proudly displays a sign as being Les Paul's birthplace.

A damn fine life in which his name was slapped on the world's sexiest guitar. Good run.

For what it's worth, I love mine despite the fact that someone flew to Austin and scratched "Les Paul" off the headstock.

Aw, I got ol' Les to sign his book for me way back when. I'll have to look it up tonight to see what he said but it was something really cute like, "Keep pickin' darlin'".

I have seen that sign.............

This exhibit is at a local *museum*
Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin : Les Paul

RIP Les, thanks for the music

ETA When I can't sleep at night I sometimes listen to WGN radio and this program.........Les would call in or they would go to one of his shows.......
