(Gibson) U2's The Edge was presented the Les Paul Spirit Award during a ceremony at the Bonnaroo Music Festival last Friday (June 9). The guitarist paid homage to Paul as he accepted the honor. Video footage of the event has been posted on YouTube.

"Les Paul … is without a doubt a man after my own heart," said The Edge. "An innovator, an incredible inventor, and an original. He had a spirit of invention and inquisitiveness … he was always after that sound that had never been heard before.

"I owe [him] a debt of gratitude, not only for the contributions made to music, but in terms of his contributions to the technology…. Multi-track recording probably wouldn't exist if it weren't for Les." Watch the video here.
