Les Paul, most famous for the invention of the electric guitar, died August 13, 2009 at the age of 94. "Without Les Paul, we would not have rock and roll as we know it...He was truly an architect of rock and roll," wrote Terry Stewart, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in a statement released today. Besides the electric guitar, Les Paul also pioneered multitrack recording, earned thirty-six gold records, won multiple grammy awards, was inducted into the Inventor's Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Bush in 2007.
Grammy award winning producer/engineer Neil Dorfsman (Dire Straits, Paul McCartney, Sting, and many more) recently used two AEA A440 active ribbon microphones at Clubhouse Studio in New York. "AEA mics will amaze you with their clarity and richness of sound," he said. "They have everything we all love about vintage mics, but with plenty of gain, low-noise, and the warmth and color that makes almost everything you record sound better."
