“Musician, inventor, and Waukesha native Les Paul has died at the age of 94. The legendary guitarist is credited with helping bring the rise of rock and roll music, with the electric guitar and multi-track recording. WPR’s Chuck Quirmbach interviewed Paul after a May 2007 showing of a documentary about his life and contributions to music.”

You can download the interview by visiting WPR’s homepage.

And here’s a link to the documentary Chasing Sound, where you can watch clips, view images of Paul and his hometown of Waukesha and learn more about one of Wisconsin’s own: www.lespaulfilm.com.
