 Any comments from Pete on the passing of the legendary Les Paul?

Dunno about the rest of you folks, but I absolutely adore the Les Paul sound. I wish Pete could have found some way to continue to play them live.

of security, and for their sense of belonging."
Yeah, I feel like that, too.  I've always felt like that.  Now  that I 
can't hear so well anymore, the answer is what? Death is on it's way and  I 
can't stop it either. In the Ether.
