    Overshaddowed by Les Paul's inventions and his technical skills as a player was the fact that he, and especially Les Paul and Mary Ford made some amazing music, full of life, humor and joy. Les Paul wasn't just an innovator with the guitar. He was one of the pioneers of multi-track recording. The list of his achievements goes on and on. There is so much that modern music owes to Les Paul and the Electric Guitar is just a tiny fraction of a life well lived. "How Hight the Moon": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0ffdwBUL78Steranko may have been innovative, but I don't consider his work as foundational. If I were searching for a comics analogy to Les Paul, I would go with Kirby, Ditko or Stan Lee or maybe Joe Simon, a lesser known foundational master.
