The great British guitar pioneer passed on this morning, aged 91. Read the BBC obit just to see how important he was:

To be honest I had no idea he was still alive, but RIP. Learnt my first few chords from my mother's dog-eared copy of Play In A Day.

I'd heard he was a pretty epochal figure but that is something. RIP indeed!
