Trucks, Satriani & West Comment on the Passing of Les Paul
In an interview with Gibson Guitars, Derek Trucks said "Les Paul played until the day he died. I admire that... That's the way you live a life" Of his many achievements Trucks said, "You could take any one of the many things he did and it would have been enough for most people. Inventing multi-tracking and then the 1st great solid body electric guitar. The amount of things he pulled off is pretty astounding." Joe Satriani said in a statement "Les Paul set a standard for musicianship and innovation that remains unsurpassed. He was the original guitar hero and the kindest of souls. Last October I joined him onstage at the Iridium club in [New York], and he was still shredding. He was and still is an inspiration to us all." Of the sad news Leslie West explained that Paul was "as innovative as Hendrix or anyone close to it, he took the electric guitar to a new level - one everyone could understand. He was so far ahead of everyone else; he did not realize what he had done."
