Les Paul Wins Grammy at 90


Les Paul, inventor of the modern solid-body electric guitar and accomplished jazz & blues guitarist, earned two Grammy awards this week at the age of 90 for best pop instrumental and best rock instrumental. 

While Les Paul is perhaps more well known as a guitar than as a player these days, it hasn't stopped him from recording a new CD last year, and playing weekly in New York city at the Iridium Jazz Club where he's jammed with the likes of Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Paul McCartney, Slash, Dickie Betts, Steve Miller and Zakk Wylde . 

Paul was hospitalized earlier this week as fluid accumulated in his lungs.
