RIP Les Paul

Last night at Darien Lake our heroes played a short tribute to one of their heroes, Les Paul. Les Paul passed away yesterday at age 94. Whats the big deal? Well Les Paul created a solid body electric guitar which led the way for heavy rock- without Les we would not have bands with guitar sounds like Led Zepplein and The Who. Les also pioneered studio overdubbing, reverb, and many other sound effects that are now standard in popular music.

Check out the (short) Phish version of How High The Moon.
