An Icon of Rock Guitar is Gone : Jim Marshall (1923-2012)

Because he truly was an icon who helped the most awesome guitarists to shape the Rock tone and history. We’ve all dreamed about having a Marshall amp… I never had one myself but it seemed that every guitarist around had a Marshall to plug in!

Because you don’t say that you play a Marshall amp… You just play a Marshall and everybody understand!

Because everytime a guitarist wants a wall of amps… This is a freaking Marshall wall !!

He created more than amplifiers… He created an icon, a cult object probably as iconic as a Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Les Paul…

RIP Father of Loud aka Jim Marshall…
