Paul Allen death: The Microsoft founder who was a space pioneer, football lover and guitar player 'as good as Hendrix'

The Independent - Tech 

Paul Allen found fame and immense fortune through his work building Microsoft. But his passions were as broad as they were spectacular: he had an enthusiasm for everything from rocket ships to rock'n'roll. The Microsoft co-founder died in Seattle this week from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. Allen came to fame and fortune as a consequence of his work with Microsoft. He gave the company its name and its start, and spawned an entire industry that changed the world: "Personal computing would not have existed without him," Bill Gates said in a statement. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.
