The "Monkey Trial" ended on this day in 1925 in Dayton, TN. John T. Scopes

Les Paul (Lester William Polsfuss)  (June 9, 1915 – August 12, 2009) 

Les Paul  was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar, which made
the sound of rock and roll possible. Paul taught himself how to play guitar and
while he is mainly known for jazz and popular music, he had an early career in
country music. He is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was
not the first to use the technique, his early experiments with overdubbing, also
known as sound on sound, delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects
and multitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention.
                                                              (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
