IALive got there just in time to watch a great tribute to the late Les Paul the inventor of solid-body electric guitar which "made the sound of rock and roll possible". He is credited with many recording innovations, including overdubbing, known as sound on sound, delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects, and multitrack recording. Paul is one of a handful of artists with a permanent, stand-alone exhibit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Named by the music museum as an "architect" and a "key inductee" along with Sam Phillips and Alan Freed.
