Couldn't help but notice the way B.B King looked there, Football Fan was right, he doesnt look a day over 70. I might have to rethink my consideration for him this year.

Les Paul is a guitar player *NOT* a guitar maker!!! Yes, Gibson makes guitars named after him. He doesn't build them though.

Les Paul is a guitar player *NOT* a guitar maker!!! Yes, Gibson makes guitars named after him. He doesn't build them though.

Mr Paul designed the Les Paul model produced by Gibson, apparently well before Leo Fender started selling his first solid-bodied electric guitars. He also invented many other musical innovations such as the multi-track recorder.

He originally built this model of guitar himself, before Gibson manufactured it comercially. Therefore, Mr Paul is unarguably a guitar builder.

Maybe all the excitement of his 90th will kill him
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

I can say he seems to be somewhat in fair health. I bealive he even still does a performance here and there so i doubt his death will arrive anytime soon.'

Though in life they say never doubt.

Although i cant say i agree.

I bealive

I'm ever so glad. I bealive too. :D

I thought 'I BEALIVE' was a Frankie Laine hit, not Les Paul. And I don't think either Frankie or Les ever recorded 'I PUT A SPELL ON YOU'.

On the day the great man turns ninety I can't help thinking his inclusion this year was a bad call. He's doing one of those 'wall to wall celebrity mates' albums, a celebration gig and lots of other things that suggest 90 is nothing much to him.

Then again, there's always the chance he'll die of boredom during Peter Frampton's turn at the celebration gig.

I say as of right now and i'am just guessing that he
will have the least chance of dieing on the 2005 list.

But then again i predicted Sir John Mills as a man
to reach his 100th birthday.....

Such a bad call

Just heard and old Les Paul and Mary Ford record on the radio, sounds positively bizarre by today's standards but his flashy fretwork still shines.

She'd be a mere 87........if she hadn't died in 1977.

Maybe guitar playing is the secret. Segovia - Spanish master of the instrument - was still gigging in his nineties.

Ahhh but lets not forget that Segovia was DeathList's first ever success on the first list in 1987 :D

Unlike several drummers we could mention!
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Les is still performing live at the Iridium club in New York, two sessions every Monday.

:o

Les Paul is in fact playing there every Monday. I saw him there in July, he is spry, smart ,quick, and not gonna buy the farm unless a bus hits him.

Les Paul is just about to release his first rock album at the age of 90

He's looking good and I think he will enjoy the rest of 2005 without dying.

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow
