Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) today introduced a resolution celebrating the 100th birthday of the late Les Paul, the “Wizard of Waukesha.” Paul was born June 9, 1915 in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Les Paul played a significant role in the advancement of modern music. A talented inventor, musician and musical pioneer, Paul helped revolutionize the industry through the birth of the solid-body electric guitar. As we approach his centennial birthday, we are reminded of Paul’s contributions to society every time we turn on the radio.”
