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.
