The innovative and legendary guitarist Les Paul died today but his inspiring contributions to the world of guitar and music will continue to live on. Here’s a pic of Zack and Danny Cooksey posing with Les in 1994. Also, one of Les Paul’s top forty songs that he performed with Mary Ford was our great uncle Joe Young’s “I’m Sitting on Top of the World”. They performed it in 1953. Joe wrote the song with Ray Henderson and his lyric writing partner Sam M Lewis back in 1925. Al Jolson’s version of it was played during the opening montage of 1930’s New York City in the 2005 remake of King Kong, and in the closing sequence of the 1995, U.S. – U.K. film, Richard III. Also, Notable interpretations have been recorded by these performers: Carl Perkins, Doris Day, Taj Mahal & Corey Harris, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie and Jerry Lewis.
