    Default It's raining 'The Father of Loud'

    Jim Marshall, Amp Pioneer Known As 'The Father Of Loud,' Has Died at Age 88



    by Mark Memmott

    If your ears are ringing after a show, there's a fair chance a Marshall amplifier was responsible. And that you're glad for it.

    Only a special few might be able to "go to 11," as Spinal Tap famously boasted, but Marshall amps have been among the most popular with rock 'n' roll's superstars since the company was founded in 1960.

    So it's with some sadness that we pass along word that company founder Jim Marshall died today in England. He was 88. A son, Terry Marshall, tells The Associated Press that his father had cancer and had recently suffered several strokes.

    Tributes are showing up on Twitter from some of rock's best-known guitarists and others in the industry:

    The Who: "RIP Jim Marshall, Father of Loud."

    Slash: "R & R will never be the same w/out him. But, his amps will live on FOREVER! \,,/"

    Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi: "A true innovator. RIP."

    Fender USA: "An icon has passed."

    Gibson: "RIP Jim Marshall."

    Thank you Mr. Marshall, I commend you on your contribution to the world of music. R.I.P.

    Haha I was just coming in to joke that he must be proud to see acts like Justice and Sleigh Bells use his signature product as dumb stage props.

    Maybe if you slacked off at work more, you would have heard about it.

    I imagine you're sharing this because you too know the feeling well. Speaking of which, I will be working all night. Fuck.
