    I don't know much about the guy, but apparently a lot of people really liked his guitars...

    A true icon. Rock would not exist if not for Les Paul. RIP.

    Probably had greater influence on rock music than anyone.
    RIP to a true legend.

    Almost bought a Gibson Les Paul sunburst off a guy who said there was something amiss with the electronics and it would be mine for $100 if he couldn't get it fixed. I don't play but I would have hung it on the wall, just a gorgeous axe, same one guys like Townshend, Page and Clapton played. Wouldn't you know he got it fixed.....

    Not just rock, modern music in general.

    RIP, the greatest person to ever come from Waukesha.

    He probably checked out on life when Sam Bass called him and told him Kyle Busch had smashed one of his guitars at Nashville.

    His name is synonymous with rock, guitars, overdubbing, sound systems, the whole bit.

    I wouldn't blame anyone if they chose to name the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, or at least one wing thereof, after him.

    RIP. Guitarists everywhere raise a glass in your honor.

    I was thinking the same thing. Les Paul has influenced everything from rock music to modern classical.
