While i don't use Marshall (i stick to Hughes & Kettner and Mesa/Boogie) i know how damn important Marshall was to the rock world and even made a tribute now, with some classic Deep Purple (the 72/73 dvd featues them in front of a big marshall stack) and some jimi hendrix. The history of Marshall is interesting, he was born during the second world war, never made it through school because of the war and later had to work, sang in some groups and later learned to play drums and teached guys like mitch mitchell and micky waller to play the drums, amazing in its own right.
Very influent and very important to the world of rock music, may he rest in peace Smile

Never knew about the person those amps were named after, but I am extremely familiar with the name. RIP

Rock wouldn't have sounded the same without him. I'll hoist a cold brew and play some metal tonight in his honor.

R.I.P. to the "father of loud," as he was described in his obituary in today's paper.

It also sez that "Mr. Marshall was a larger than life figure with a taste for single malt Scotch whiskey and Cuban cigars. Even in his 70s, when he was already suffering from some serious health problems, he thought nothing of hopping on a plane to catch an Iron Maiden concert."

...sounds like our kinda guy. Respect!!

88 years young.

I love when old-timers still drink and smoke and pretty much do whatever the hell they want well into their later years like it's no big thing. Give us "less-than-health-conscious" types something to aspire to.
