I went to rollingstone.com to what they had to say about Les Paul.
I saw their list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Players of All-Time
Hendrix is first - OK, I can live with that.

*I* don't know any chords, either - does that make me one of the greats?
On Friends once, Phoebe asked Chrissie Hynde if she knew
"all" the chords.
We saw BB King years ago and every sone sounded EXACTLY the same
Fourth was Clapton, which is about right, if clean and slow is your thing.
Fifth was Robert Johnson who was a fine player - in the thirties!!!

Rolling Stone, thy name is whore - but funny, I'll trust your politics
