Public pays respects to Les Paul
MILWAUKEE - Family members, longtime friends and music fans of all ages lined up Friday at a public visitation for Les Paul, the inventor whose creation of the first solid-body electric guitar helped pave the way for rock 'n' roll.
Adam Bollinger never got a chance to see Paul play live.
But the 15-year-old from Plainfield, Ill., knows how important Paul was to rock 'n' roll. That's why he and his mom, Coleen Bollinger, drove two and a half hours to be among the first in line.
'It's just about me paying respects and being here for him,' Bollinger said.
