Google has had some cool homepage logos throughout the years, but none of them have come close to today’s theme.  Okay, maybe the day when the logo was a playable Pac Man game was better, but today’s theme is still pretty awesome.

The company is honoring Les Paul’s birthday today, which occurred on this day in 1915.  Aside from creating one of the most iconic (and best) guitars of all time— the Gibson Les Paul —Paul was integral in the development in many modern studio techniques such as multi-track recording.  The man is responsible for many of the instruments that have created popular music throughout the years as well as the process in which that music was recorded.  Paul died in August of 2009 at age 94, but he left behind an overwhelmingly impressive legacy in the music community.
