one time i went to shake his hand & thank him for THEE GUITAR... right hand... & he stuck out his left, explaining that he'd been in a bad car accident when he was younger that really fucked his right arm, he'd chosen to have it set in a position where he could still play guitar with it... but not much else!...

top man... sad loss...

It's hard to believe that someone actually invented the electric guitar...it's like inventing mayonnaise or something, you feel like it's always been there.

But it hasn't.

All hail. RIP
