Les Paul

You may not recognize his face, but if you’re into music you’ve certainly heard his name. Les Paul was considered by many in the music industry to be a genius, something of a catalyst for modern guitar playing. If nothing else, you’ve heard of the almost-legendary guitar named for him, the Gibson Les Paul.

Paul helped create modern music as we know it today, and he continued to make sweet melodies until he was into his 90s. He died quietly this week in New York, aged 94.

“We owe many of his inventions that made the rock ‘n roll sound of today to him, and was the founding father of modern music,” said B.B. King on Paul’s death. “This is a huge loss to the music community and the world.”

Pint Shot Riot

Pint Shot Riot is a British Rock band that has had their fair amount of publicity on BBC Radio, BBC Band of the week and even made the UK Indie charts at #7. Their first single, “Punches Kicks Trenches And Swords,” had an appearance on The Sims 3, giving the band some international exposure. Pint Shot Riot currently holds a publishing deal with EA and their partner company, Artwerk, to license their songs to appear on games developed by EA. If you are big into EA games, get familiar with the name – you will be hearing it a lot more.
