    Lightbulb R.I.P. Jim Marshall

    Being a gamer I started to post this on my Guild's forum but after reading the thread regarding Earl Scruggs I realized that this would probably be a better venue. Regardless of your musical tastes but especially if you like hard rock the last titan that made that genre possible has fallen.
    Jim Marshall obituary: Creator of famed rock 'n' roll amps dies at 88 - latimes.com

    On my Mount Rushmore of Rock Tech Legends there are three faces - now all departed:
    1. Les Paul
    2. Leo Fender
    3. Jim Marshall

    They may not have had groupies throwing themselves at their feet but without their labor neither would Led Zepplin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, Guns n Roses or any other of the countless bands that profited from their genius. In my opinion, without Jim Marshall, the backdrop to the tapestry of you life would have been as different as if John Browning had never lived.

    R.I.P. Les, Leo and Jim.

    I've owned a Fender guitar and Marshall haff stack. Sold them a long time ago for an acoustical Alvarez. Wife didn't like the sound.

    Jim Marshall definitely influenced and left a mark on Rock'n'Roll. A lot of bands would have never had the signature sound they had if it weren't Marshall's designs.

    Condolences go out to Marshall's family and loved ones.

    The highest caliber! Unfortunately, too spendy for me, so I settle for my Fender accoustic and an Ibanez electric...

    Truly an impact on music, bands and touring, in all forms.

    Marshall was as responsible for the sound of Rock and Roll as Elvis, The Beatles, or any other musician. Bands from all genres used his gear to revolutionize. The only genre I think he didn't change was Jazz.

    For a kid of my generation a shirtless Slash with his Les Paul and a Marshall stack was the eptiome of rock and roll attitude.

    Jim will be missed.

    This is my LPSO (Les Paul Shaped Object) kit guitar and my Marshall inspired Ampeg which died nearly the same day as Jim Marshall. Jim might be more than a little bit responsible for some of my hearing loss. Les Paul might factor in as well as John Browing for that matter!

    Without Jim Marshall's innovation in the amplification arena....we wouldn't have modern amps like Engl, Line6, Bogner, Randall, Mesa, etc. I got rid of my Marshall head years ago in favor of a more modern head. I'm still running into the Marshall 1960 cab tho :D

    RIP Jim
