Stay Loud, Jim Marshall . . .

Losing the “Lord of Loud”, Jim Marshall is an end to one of the key pioneers of Rock and Roll.  Creator of Marshall amplification, he made amps that were played by Hendrix, Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Stevie Ray Vaughan – just about every musician wanted a Marshall.  I even had one at one time, a JTM 45 that fueled a 4×12 cabinet that I wish I had today.

This old Cream live performance on the BBC is a perfect example of why Jim Marshall will be missed as Clapton played with his amp turned to “11”.
