I’m very upset about this. For not making the time to go see him play; I live 20-min subway ride away from where he’d played for years. Even worse, I had, many years ago, gone to an 8pm show at Iridium, and left because I didn’t like where my seat was. “It’s too far from the stage” “I’ll come back.” Takes the cake in terms of regrets, doesn’t it. Lesson: never, never, never put off something for later what you can do today. Later almost always becomes too late. And too late brings heartache like you won’t believe.
RIP, Mr. Les Paul. No amount of words or pictures can come close to describing your contribution to the music & music industry.
