Gonna catch some flak over this but if ANYONE checks out some boobtube videos etc of Sir Les no one can deny his innovations and guitar skills that spurred GENERATIONS of players/entertainers are the pentacle of performance and technique etc. I'm 60 and grew up through the whole 60's/70's rock era but over the years I realized how important Les was to the guitar community. JMHOYMMV. Hell, I loved the guy and all he had to share with the world. What a great attitude and innovated approach to what was a pioneering time in guitar history. Your thoughts? Perhaps this thread should read..."the greatest pioneer of electric guitars of all time". BTW...His wife Mary Ford was an awesome player too and could keep up with him. She really was a great accompaniment to him.
