Is it true? He is indeed a legend (and an old-time shredder!).

RIP Les - not only did he create an awesome guitar with Gibson, but he also pioneered multitrack recording with his Wife Mary Ford - he started playing wax records on top of each other, and then was one of the first people ever to use a multitrack recorder - a real innovator.
