goodbye "The Father of Loud"

Jim Marshall w/ Kerry King

How many times the eight- letter word Marshall devastated your ears? How many times did you almost faint? How many times you watched those towering amps, the walls of Marshalls, in concerts/shows? Countless times, right? The creator of Marshall Amplifiers, Jim Marshall, has died April 5 at age 88. Surely, Marshall played a very important role in the history and can't be emphasized with words. Who knew it would change the face of  music when The Who's Townshend asked Marshall to produce a louder amp? Let's crank up the gain in the honour of Jim Marshall one more time.
