    Default Leo Receives Grammy

    Before the main Grammy show of 8 February, Leo Fender was posthumously honored with the Academy's Technical Award during a lower-key ceremony on 7 February.

    Leo Fender died in 1991.

    Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, The Edge and Eric Clapton have all paid tribute to the man whose company invented the Stratocaster, Telecaster, numerous classic amps and also set a benchmark for mass-scale guitar building.

    Leo Fender's achievements in the guitar industry are too many to summarize.

    Long Overdue! All Hail the Chief!
    "Life's too short not to enjoy great tone."

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
