    RIP: The "Lord Of Loud"


    English drummer/music store owner/philanthropist - and the inventor of the iconic Marshall amplifier - Jim Marshall died yesterday at the age of 88.  He was also an OBE honoree and has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Marshall's invention greatly increased the volume at which rock music could be played.  Supposedly, Pete Townsend was the impetus and initial user, though many soon followed.  And it was a Marshall that was augmented to "11" ('it's one louder, init...?') via Spinal Tap.

    In 1967, Jimi Hendrix stated, “There’s nothing that can beat my old Marshall tube amps, Nothing in the whole world.”

    Everbody who knows Rock music , knows what a Marshall amp is.

    You don't hardly ever see a band playing live without seeing the name 'Marshall' behind them.

    I remember my first Marshall Amp - had it on top of a 6 speaker Peavy. Bizarre sound if I do say so.
