Les Paul, one of the great innovators in music technology, has passed 
away at the age of 94. I knew he’d done a lot, but how early he did 
what is more fully discussed in this obituary:

I know he was also involved in the development of compression 
technology in the late 50 & 60s.  So he did a lot.  AND, he kept 
doing weekly guitar gigs at a club in New York until late last year, 
I think it was. A good run!
