Here’s a story that seems appropriate. This happened years ago. My co-worker Shannon had just come home from a trip to New York with her mum, and she told about going to a club and hearing some mind-blowing music. She described it like this: “We went to this club, and there was this old guy playing guitar and he was really good, the music was amazing. And he was like really old, but he was still super good, his fingers were flying. His name was Les Paul, and we stayed the whole evening, and it was so good.” I stopped her, and said, “What, now? You actually saw Les Paul?” She had no idea what she had just experienced. I explained to her that Les Paul invented the electric guitar! as well as things like overdubbing and delay effects, and multitrack recording. Damn right he was old. He died in 2009 at the age of 94, so I’m pretty sure she saw him perform pretty close to the end. Anyway, she had a new appreciation for the fella she had seen after that conversation.
