Death of Jim Marshall aged 88.

The inventor of the Marshall Amplifier - Jim Marshall has passed away aged 88. When I worked in a Newcastle music shop every new amp that came out was compared with the Marshall range - not many did.
The rock guitarists heaven was a Marshall stack - maybe it still is. I actually met Jim Marshall at one of the BMI trade fairs and found him to be an affable easy to talk to guy.
R.I.P.
Thanks to LondonJazz for drawing my attention to Jim Marshall's death.
Lance.
