From Wisconsin Public Radio‘s Web site:
“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.
